Moss Senior 
Speaker at 

Addresses Students on 
Reinterpreting Tradition 

"Through training and education 
we arc the heirs to whatever remains of 
tradition, and it is dearly our duty to 
affect a rcmlerpretalion of the ideal of 
the gentleman," William Henry Moss 
declared this morning during his 

Senior Convocation address. Speaking 

on "A < lentleman of the New School.*' 
Mr. Moss stated in part: 

"During a recent extended study in 
hterar\ criticism, my attention was 
engaged by I he constantly recurring 
I heme in literature of the ideal of the 
gentleman. Every age has expressed 
this ideal according to its own needs. 
It little matters that many times this 
ideal, considered now from the ac- 
cumulated wisdom of the ages seems 
selfish and cruel for a large proportion 
of people. It little matters that rela- 
tively few men have attained to 
individual prominence by living up to 
the ideal. What matters is that the 
ideal was there, that men recognized 
it and aimed at its realization, spread- 
ing and retaining its urhane influence 
through the ages. The guild of the 
gentleman has been a tremendous 
beneficient power in all the progress of 
civilization. Our age has been so 
unfortunate as not to have given 
expression to this ideal at all; indeed, 
the very tenets of a personal honor 
and a religions duty themselves have 
!>een called in question." 
* » * 

"In the ancient Greek civilization, 
man's concern was with an harmoni- 
ously balanced life. Aristotle, in the 
Ethics, and Plato, in his Dialogues, 
provided for their leaders, conceptions 
of the gentleman in which the ethical 
life was closely associated with har- 
mony and beauty." 

» * * 

"The forces of disintegration in 
civilization induced the view that this 
world is at best a proving-ground for 
the world to come. But there was no 
objection to one's proving one's self 
by fighting for the establishment of 
God's kingdom on earth. Chivalric 
emphasis on armed prowess and on 
the knight's duty to God and to his 
liege lord is romantically but also 
ideally embodied in the Court of 
Charlemagne and in the legendary 
Hound Table of King Arthur. In the 
Italian Renaissance men returned to 
a vision of the balanced life of the 
anCH nta; like their masters, the Greeks, 
they Bought more nearly complete 
realization of man's place in this 
world. A fully-developed, well- 
rounded personality was their criter- 
ion of human excellence."' 

* + 

"In the eighteenth centurv, polished 
manners were emphasized as the ear- 
marks of the gentleman. Yet it WM 
not on mere superficialities that this 
emphasis tell, for the hest men of the 

eighteenth century were persuaded 

that the externalities of life reflect the 
true temper of the inner man." 

♦ » • 

'Through the ages the priceless 
Stores of the world's culture have had 
the jealous guardianship and generous 
patronage of the gentleman." 

* * 

"Bui most important of all is the 
fat that several important forces in 
the modern world have militated 
against the traditional ideal of the 
gentleman. Science, in its primary 
Conce rn with other than human values 
is one such lone, democracy, with its 
destruction of social distinctions is 
another: business, concerned with an 
essentially materialistic end is a third; 
specialisation, which derives from 
m ience and I usmess, and which neg- 
lects both the ideal anil the needs of a

What the 1929 market crash and 
resulting depression has meant to 
Mass. State is indicated by the above 
graphic description of statistical 
trends at the college. Facts concern- 
ing incoming students from the years 
1927 to 1936 were compiled by the 
Collegian in its search for definite and 
comprehensive trends. 

SorioilNIIfKK InrifiiM-il 

The effects of the depression on 
M.S.C. are clearly shown by the 
grapbs. The undecided vocations 
group reached a high level in 1929, 
just before the stock-market crash, 
indicating that up till then students 
were not so much interested in the 
future as in the immediate present; 
the Collegian believes this was known 
as the "Rah-rah" age. But, between 
1929 and 1934, the undecided group 
level dropped amazingly. Students 
evidently began to realize that the 
world, for a while, was going to be a 
harder place to live in, and reacted 
accordingly. They came to college to 
get an education in something that 
would lead to a job. But now, with 
the slow return of prosperity, the 
undecided line is coming up again, 
showing that students are trending 
toward the general educational atti- 
tude of college once more. 

A few sociological factors have also 
been graphed birth, schooling, and 

occupation of parents. These results 
bring out the market crash and de- 
pression effects better, perhaps, than 
any other graphs. Especially vital is 
the graph of fathers in the field of 
business. The sharp rise from 1928 
to September 1929 seems to indicate 
the market build-up just before the 
October crash; then, down dropped 
business to a new low in 1932, the 
pit of the depression. But the curve 
is reasserting itself, and by 1936 is up 
to a new high level. 

Collegian, I < l>< -pt. I>< ti.«l 

Between 1930 and 1933, the stud- 
ents with neither foreign-born parents 
decreased and students whose fathers 
had had only a common-school educa- 
tion (presumed, generally, to be a 
poorer family type) suddently in- 
creased more than 10,, and ju. 1 ^ as 
suddenly decreased. The mystery has 
defied the Collegian and the depart- 
ment of Economics. 

Where Mass. State students come 
from is important in the consideration 
of farm and city. The graph of stud- 
ents born in cities or towns shows 
marked increased from 51 'i to 68',', 
the highest point being 82', in 1935. 
On the contrary, students from farms 
have decreased from 24', to 15 r , 
dropping rather steadily throughout 
the depression years. This shows that 
Mass. State is becoming recognized in 
the cities as something more than a 
mere agricultural college. 

Agriculture Declining 

In general, agriculture and its vari- 
ous fields is declining at the college as 
an intended vocation of the four-year 
students, while science has gained 
decidedly. Following the graph: agri- 
culture, in 1927, stood at 18^, but had 
dropped to 4 , by 1936. Science, on 
the other hand, was at 23', in '27, and 
at 32, in '36. There is a definite 
trend toward Mass. State's becoming 
more and more a science major 
school. Not graphed, for lack of 
complete data, were Home Economics 
and Social Service as intended voca- 
tion for the co-eds. These fields, plus 
Languages and Literature, have in- 
creased markedly in the last three 

A correlation between fathers occu- 
pied in agricultural fields, and sons 
majoring in agriculture shows that 
the farmer's sons are deserting the 
heritage of their fathers. While the 
line of the fathers' occupation is fairly 
steady, the students' line, as pointed 
out by the graph, has dropped con- 

So, the Collegian, in a Roger Babson 
manner, thinks that Mass. State is 
becoming more and more universal 
izt'd; it is expanding into wider fields 
of culture. From an economic view- 
point it is quite obvious that as goes 
the country, so goes the college and 

statistics are statistics, no matter 
how vou slice them. 

well-rounded personality, is a fourth 

subversive force."

"But now we have reached a point 
both economically and socially 
where. I maintain, a reinterprelation 
and revaluation of the old ideal of the 
gentleman is a necessity. We have 
had enough of futility and disillusion- 
ment. But the old ideal will not. a- 
we have seen, serve modern America. 
It must he a rcinterpretat ion if for no 
other reason than because modern 
America is impatient of the class dis- 
tinctions that the old ideal implies ." 

* * * 

"But this reinterprelation must fill 
the needs of the present age as truly 
as the older ideals filled the need of 
earlier ages. The old ideal was found 
wanting and so was discarded. Our 
new ideal must first of all accord with 
(he principles and doctrines of demo- 

* * * 

"The ideal gentleman will recognize 
the equality of all men before the law; 
equality of justice for all men shall be 
the first principle of his political creed, 
and he shall not use wealth or position 
to defeat that justice, even in matters 
that touch him closely, nor will he 
permit others to do so 

"He will reassert the value of the 
fully develo|>ed personality. He will 
insist upon values of experience with 
out which lite may be but a long 

moment of care and drudgery." 

* * 

"The gentleman will also be sensible 
of a high religious duty. In our age, 
religious teachings have not passed 
unscathed through the attacks of a 
naturistic philosophy and an expansive 
liberalism. In the whole restless 
world there seems to be nothing 
abiding, everything is of the moment, 
ephemeral. Lives are fragments of 
human experience lacking the motivat- 
ing, unifying force of faith. And yet 
the grounds of that faith are still 
there. Nothing has destroyed the 
eternal truths of religion. A decent 
humility will show us that humility 
and a sweet reasonableness that will 
make of the attacking forces them- 
selves, a pari <>l the Eternal Plan." 
* + • 

"The extent to which this ideal of 
the gentleman can he made effective 
in our age will obviously depend upon 
the extent to which each one of us will 
make it a pervasive part of his own 
life. And, as college graduates, this 
ideal concerns us nearly. The great 
work of the gentleman falls naturally 
uid logically upon us. Through train- 

ing and education we are the heirs to 
whatever remains of the tradition, and 
we are capable of effecting just such a 
reinterpretation of it as I have sug- 
gested. Because, so far as training is 
concerned, we shall be in a position 
to establish ourselves as leaders in our 
communities, we are the most likely 
to make an ideal prevail. It is clearly 
our duty to do so; in no other way can 
we so perfectly repay our debt to the 
Commonwealth which has educated

When the facts came to light how

According to Miss Innocent P.ystand-

somehow come under the influence of 
the mass movements of our time, or

As numbers of the class of 1941 w.ll bear Mid on several occasions 
in their several years at th.s college, these are momentous times. This year, 
the times seem to he particularly momentous for the state college Mid 
,ts undergraduate students. For among matters affecting the policy and 
the future of the college, which are at work at present, are the reduction 
in the number of credit! required for graduation, a definite decision impend- 
ing on the granting of an A B. degree by the college, and the possibility 
of the college losmg its identity the creation from among the state- 
teachers COllegn of .» University of Massachusetts. 

The reduction from seventy two junior-senior credits to sixty junior- 
senior credits necessary for graduation, which goes into effect th.s semester, 
comes as an outstanding change m the conservative policy of the college. il come extensive revisions m the curriculum of the college. Other 
revisions, to effect a further modernization of the curriculum, are planned. 
This semester will see, too, a definite decision rendered on the 
institution Of the degree of bachelor of Arts at the state landgrant college 
The effect Of the decision on the future of the college has frequently been 
debated It has seemed, however, that the mst.tut.on of the degree of 
Hachclor of Arts a. M. S. C would the of the college by proper recogmt.on for work now done by students a« the 

college Indefinite postponement of the mst.tut.on of the degree, which 

would commit the growing State landgrant college to a narrow policy of 
agriculture and science m the lulls of Western Massachusetts, can only 

mcceed in discouraging the attendance si th.s college of students who 

•prefer to adhere to the ds and who. as such, were Specifically included 

by the author of the Morr.ll Act. under winch the college was created, .n 
his design for land grant tol leges. 

Next January will see. too, a report to the leg.slature by Us speed 

educational cornmittee, of which the commissioner of eduction is • mem 
ber on the proposal put forth by the amirmssionei last June to form • 

University of Massachusetts from the several state teachers colleges. I he 
place Of Massachusetts State ( ollege m this scheme, a college winch was 

hc ,d by Governor Joseph B, Ely in 1934 as holding the possibility m 

itself of developing into a Massachusetts University, is of incalculable 
importance to the future of this mst.tut.on whkh will, on October 2, see 
the seventieth year since its formal opening. 

Whatever may be the effect of these momentous times upon the 
college thy do provide for all four classes an opportunity to study at this 
college' during one of its most progressive and simulating periods.

and Heaunioiit were quite a little be-

however, should place one of the three

the man to go to the front. I'.eau-

W Maroon Nine One of New 

England's Best - Down 

Only to Trinity 

Losing only three games, Coach 
Lb Caraway's 1937 diamond tones 
gained a high place in New England 
baseball rankings when they com- 
pleted the season down only to Trin- 
ity in series standings. The other two 
losses were avenged during the season 
in return games and the Maroon fin- 
ished tied at one all with Conn. State 
and Amherst. 

State was led at bat hy Captain l«'r<-d 
Kiel but the Maroon successes were 
due mainly to the air-tight pitching 
of Fran Kiel, John Rembeii, Mucky 
Hokina and Norm Blake. Taking turns 
with the pitching assignments, these 
moundsmen limited the opposition to 
an average of five hits a game. 

Riel turned in a no-hitter against 
Williams, and a two blow performance 
against Worcester Tech; Bemben gave 

Springfield but two blows, Amherst 
only five, and Wesleyan two; Blake 
topped Conn. State with five and Neu 
Hampshire with three- while Hokina 
tripped major rival Tufts on Rye 
blows and gave Bowdoin only four. 
Both town title Amherst games 
went into extra innings with the 
Jeffs taking the first battle f,-4 in the 
tenth and State gaining half rightl 
to the crown with a welvc 
'•1-2 win.

Jumbos Sure to Cut Path 
Local College Circles — 
Bowdoin Strong 

Information from practice gridirons | 
points to a busy year for Coach Cara 
way's Maroon warriers as most of 
State's '.'{? opponents show signs of 
fielding strong elevens. 

American International, the opener, 

is a vastly improved outfit according 
to Arthur Sampson, N'ew England 
football authority, but still should be 
an easy win for the Maroon. Adam 
Walsh. Bowdoin mentor, has his usu- 
al strong Polar Hear team and should 
wage an even battle on Alumni Field. 
Perhaps for the fourth straight year 
the margin of the point-after-touch- 
down will decide the Howdoin-Stat,' 

Conn. State will again be Strong 
but should be- tired after facing 
Brown and Wesleyan on successive 
Saturdays. Rhode Island will be out 
to avenge last year's defeat and Ma 

roon supporters should pray for en- 
other rainy day to slow down the 
high-geared Ram attack. 

Worcester Tech will again he 

strong but state should be stronger. 

Amherst will be slightly weaker hut

lag will probably be at full. Eric 
Stahlherg. last year's freshman quar- 
ter, stands to see considerable action, 
in Caraway's effort to find a suitable 
signal caller. 

In addition to his quarterback proh- 
I'-m, Caraway has a substitute puzzle 
to solve, anil the sophomores are ex- 
pected to hear the brunt of the relief 
work this year. Jim Payson and Stan 
Finik will probably get the nod to 
go in for Sievers and Perkins, when 
the time comes, and Joe Larkin and

It is with sincere regret that the members of the Collegian board note 
the- departure of former Editor Frederick B. Lindstrom from the Massachusetts

duty toward the State ( ollege.

.second, one third, and one seventh 
prize at the Pastern State- Expos! 

tion. The Land Architecture Colonial 
Garden in the Massachusetts building 
caused much favorable comment and 


Central Exhibit 
The Land Architecture exhibit was 
based on a colonial garden, with a 
lattice background, and brick posts 

' with sheared evergreen hedges and 
trees. Mays or booths between the 

trees were taken up by various agri- 
cultural interests, Including Pomology, 
Dairy Products. Poultry, Nursery 
Work, Florist Business, and a booth 
of tobacco, onions and potatoes. 
Tables ware used for the exhibits in 
each hay while in the background- 
large signs of colonial structure gave 
tli". importance of each exhibit. 

In the center of the large garden 
was a fountain pool, surrounded by 
flower gardens. Various colored flow- 
ers were used to make the state seal. 
Two lattice summer houses exhibited 
State College literature and Dept. of 
Agriculture literature. 


The exhibit was put on by a com- 
mittee from the college with the co- 
operation of the Dept. of Agriculture. 

The committee was composed of Prof. 

Blundell, chairman, James Robertson, 
Karl Carpenter, Arnold Davis, Cav 
Klein, O. C. Roberts, and Ralph Van 

Meter. All work was done by state 
college students under the direction 

of Richard Irving.

The main exhibit on the campus at 
present is a collection of etchings con- 
stituting the 1936 competitive exhibi- 
tion of tb*> Chicago Society of Etch- 
es which is being shown in the Me- 
morial Building. The collection la I 
lame one, of exceptionally high qual- 
ity, and illustrates vividly many of 
the different types of etching. 

Landscapes and outdoor scenes com- 
prise a large part of the exhibition, 
and include several of the different 
methods of handling etchings. Atten- 
tion to detail and delicate fine line 
work is clearly shown in such etch- 
ings as "West Texas Ranch," by 
Swann; Melchert's "The Old Guard"; 
or "The Rigger," by Taylor. A more 
general, less-detailed treatment is 
found in Hall's "The Hills of Ver- 
mont," and Hurley's "Summer Time." 
One interesting and unusual etching, 
"Zoological Gardens," Rome is done 
in a starkly realistic manner, which 
is reminiscent of egyptian art. 

Two etchings which are particu- 
larlv outstanding tat the artist's 
treatment of Hght effects and line 
detail are Palenske's "Highline Trail," 
and "Ice-River Country." 

Landscapes, however, are not the 
entire exhibition; there are some ex- 
cellent character studies and por- 
traits, especially "Samaritan High 
Priest," by Schoenbrod, and "Moki- 
hana," by Kelley; nor are all the 
etchings in the traditional black and 
white, a few are done with a color 
wash, such as "Sea Shore." 

The collection is well worth study, 
and is so varied as to be of interest 
to a great many. 

Camera Club 
The Amherst Camera Club's con- 
tribution to the art exhibits on the 
campus is a one-man show of excep- 
tional photographs by F. Allen Mor- 
gan, which is now on exhibition in the 


The collection is outstanding for its 
variety as well as for the quality of 
the work, for the photographer seems 
to be adept in many types of photo- 
graphy. His "Reaching for the Moon, 
which* has been placed first in the 
exhibition is unusual in its composi- 
tion and very fine treatment of shad- 
ing. The portrait studies are all worth 
while, especially "Memories, H. M. 
Pope," with its interesting note, and 
"Doctor." The few studies in com- 
position, show Mr. Morgan's ability 
to create some unusual effects, as in 
"Reflections," "Over the Wing," and 
"Dirty Weather." In an entirely dif- 
ferent manner, are his "Attic Stairs" 
and "Christ Church," and the con- 
trast make the collection extremely 


In the Physical Education Build- 
ing is a collection, taken from the 
college library, of art posters from 
various countries. These posters dem- 
onstrate the new tendency in poster 
work to use colors which are less 
blatant and unreal, than have been 
used formerly and to create the ef- 
fect of a true landscape painting. 
Each of the posters is treated in an 
entirely different manner, and It 
would 'be useless to try to point out 
the most outstanding. However, it 

is interesting to note the difference in 
the collection to the usual poster, and 
the exhibition is worth at least B 


Wilder Hall 
Wilder Hall is the scene of an ex- 
hibition of excellent reproductions of 
modern French masters from David 
to Picasso, including such famous 
names as Ingres. Corot. Hammer. 
Renoir, and Van Gogh, The pictures 
arc made the more interesting by w 
companving texts. They have been 
loaned for this collection by Profes- 
sor Frank A. Waugh.

Born last semester, the Collegian 
Quarterly, literary supplement of the 
Collegian, will reappear this semester 
in an enlarged form, and containing 
many new features. 

The aim of the Quarterly, according 
to the editors, is, primarily, to pre- 
sent student creative thought in its 
many forms. The students at Mass. 
State, as the past few years have 
shown, are becoming more and more 
interested in the arts, and such a 
medium as the Quarterly is invaluable 
as a means of self-expression. 

Last semester, the editors of the 
Quarterly unearthed much literary 
talent which had been shaded over by 
a lack of means of expression. 

The courses in Creative Writing 
has also helped much to increase stu- 
dent interest in literary activities. 

A short story contest will be the 
feature of the first Quarterly of this 
semester. An announcement of the 
full particulars of the contest will ap- 
pear in the next issue of the Colle- 
gian. Other new features will be: 
more condensed reviews of the newer 
books in the Goodell library, a column 
devoted to musical interests, and arti- 
cles on national and international cur- 
rent events, expressing student opin- 
ion on the changing history of a mod- 
ern world. 

The editors wish to restate that the

Reasons for the increased amount 
of deposits on uniforms required this 
year were given this week by the 
military department. Freshmen this 
year were required to deposit $24.20, 
while sophomores paid $20. 

Each year large clothing companies 
bid for the privilege of making the 
army shirts, breeches, ties, and so 
forth. The company making the low- 
est bid receives the contract. This 
year, because of the higher costs of 
raw material, the bids were not as 
low as they have been for the past 
few years.

Gilkey Speaks at 
Opening Vespers 

Every man has a strong point, and 
should utilize it, asserted Dr. James 
Gordon Gilkey of Springfield in the 
first Vespers Service of the semester 
before an audience which more than 
filled the auditorium of the Memorial 

Dr. Gilkey advised his listeners to 
do the following things when con- 
fronted by a difficult job. Give your- 
self the suggestion of success; 2. Get 
rid of inner tensions, such as a 
grudge, or jealousy; 3. Get rid of 
fear, for fear is one of the things 
which keeps us from doing our best. 
Waugh to Talk 

"Discipline" is the topic on which 
Professor Frank A. Waugh, Head of 
the Landscape Architecture Depart 
ment, will speak, at the Vespers Ser- 
vice on Sunday, October 3 in the Me 
morial Building. 

Professor Waugh, who has a repu- 
tation for being a speaker of ability, 
has had extensive experience as the 
editor of several agricultural periodi- 
cals, and from 1808 to 1911 he filled 
the position of Horticultural Editor 
for The Country Gentleman. He came 
to Mass. State in 1902.

pletely removed, this small pile of hay 
in the passage-way was not burning 

at all." 

Not Spontaneous 

Professor Rice discusses four pos- 
sibilities as to the cause of the fire: 

"All the evidence seems to point 
to the passage-way in between the 
two mows as the most likely start- 
ing point of the fire. What caused It, . 
of course, is a matter of conjecture. 
There are four possibilities: One is 
spontaneous combustion. As stated 
previously there has been no evidence 
of this and since these mows were 
filled in July, the time for sP°" taI \ e - 
ous combustion had apparently long 
since passed. The hay is being remov- 
ed with a steam shovel and I per- 
sonally have watched practically all 
of this work. There has been no in- 
dication anywhere in the mows of 
charred burned places due to spon- 

taneous combustion. With no evidence 
of such chemical changes before hand, 
with every opportunity to have them 
noticed, and no evidence of it as the 
hay was removed, in my opinion, this 
possibility can be entirely ruled out. 
Defective Wires 
"Another possibility is defective 
wiring. Where there are live wires 
there is, I suppose, always that dan- 
ger. A motor had been set up just 
to the north of the barn on Satur- 
day morning; the job being completed 
about noon in readiness to finish till- 
ing one of the silos at the north west 
corner of the barn. The wires were 
attached and the motor run for a 
short time to see that it was work- 
ing in proper shape. The switch in- 
side was then pulled, cutting off pow- 
er to the motor. There has been one 
report that this motor was quite hot. 
The motor was removed by Professor 
Harrington, Mr. Bacon the janitor in 
! North College and some other men. 
1 Both the canvass covering the motor 
and the motor itself were hot. Profes- 

sor Harrington stated that the can- 
vass was hotter than the motor which 
led him to the conclusion that the 
heating came from the burning build- 
ing itself rather than being caused 
by the wires. Mr. Bacon said the 
grass between the motor and the 
barn was charred and black; Profes- 
sor Harrington however said he no- 
ticed nothing of this sort. Since the 
grass is still green and growing at 
this time of year, it seems impossible 
for it to have ignited outside the 
barn and crept to the barn firing it 
so that any charred erass must have 
been due to the fire in the barn rath- 
er than vice versa. The possibility of 
ignition from the wires inside the 
barn is admitted as being a possible 
cause but there is no evidence to sup- 
port this belief and had there been 
a short circuit, with burning rubber, 
it seems highly probable that the men 
working in the barn Saturday after- 
noon would have gotten some indica- 
tion from the odor. Mr. Smith in get- 
ting hay to feed the stock Saturday 

afternoon was working within ten or 
fifteen feet of the switch boxes in the 
barn located just to the left of the 
big doors on the north wall. Appar- 
ently, therefore, this possibility can 
also be eliminated. 

"There remains the possibility of 
firing the building, either intention- 
ally or through carelessness. Our two 
men who work in the barn are light 
smokers but never smoke in or close 
to the barns. Mr. Smith, one of these 
men, has been with us for 17 years 
and Mr. Mason, the other man, has 
been with us for ten years. We, of 
course, would not keep a man on the 
job were he ever found smoking in or 
around the barns. Therefore, careless- 
ness on their part and the statement 
of both men that they were not smok- 
ing while at work Saturday afternoon 
eliminates the possibility of careless- 
ness on their part. The final possibil- 
ity is that of carelessness on the part 
of visitors or intentional firing. The 
former of these, we of course have 

no check upon. Neither Mr. Smith nor 
Mr. Mason saw any visitors an,und 
the barn on Saturday afternoon 
though, of course, that does not en- 
tirely eliminate the possibility of 
some having been there since both 
these men were busy at their work. 
The matter of intentional firing f 
the barn for grudge purposes, we have 
no reason to advance. It would seem 
highly improbable also that that par- 
ticular time of day would have been 
selected for such a venture. We had 
Lieutenant Ira Taylor of the State 
Police over on Sunday to look over the 
situation. We went over the entire 
problem with him and since his in- 
terest was only that of possible in- 
cendiarism, he stated that he would 
report that there was no evidence of 
that nature. We are, therefore, unable 
to suggest at this time any logical 
solution to the problem of the origin 
of the fire. We shall continue to work 
upon it, of course, but it seems likely 
at the moment that the real cause 
of the fire will remain a mystery.'

The announcement 150 freshman had registered during the 
first week of the college session this year, came .is a surprise to many stu- 
dents. Some apprehension was felt all around by upperclassmen. They felt 
that the college was trying to outdo itself in its enrollment, that the college 
was unable to accommodate such a large entering diss, and that as the Irosh 
would become upperclassmen »om« ol' the departments that are even now 
.straining themselves with ever increasing enrollment would suiter complete 
in e-itn lency. 

What these- students overlooked is the tact that Massachusetts State 
is i growing college. It is growing not only m popularity, as increasing 
enrollments surely indicate, but also in material additions, to add to its 
effectiveness. Our grounds arc being constantly improved. With the com* 
pletion of the old library renovations, several new classrooms have been made 
available, and above all a number of additions have been made to the 
Muff. : 

This week more encouraging news is received. At their business 
meeting held m Boston last week, the trustees approved the ( o I lege s request 
lor two new buildings, .is well as for increased appropriations lor the main- 
tenance of the college, and the addition ot seven new positions on the college 
faculty. There is also talk about the State House of a ' L'niversity of Massa- 
chusetts." All these signs point to a growing State College. 

Of course this college is in no position to grOU out ol all proportion 
to its increase in facilities. The process ol growth Mid enlargement must 
be a slow gradual one. And it has been gradual. It is interesting to note 
that in 1915, the class of PMo enrolled 202 men and " women. This 
year's registration figures show an enrollment of ,'M men and 111 women 
in the class of 1941, In twenty two yens the freshman i lass has been 
increased by only I S i students. 

Everything seems to indicate a sound condition in a maturing State 
College. I Ik process ol enlargement is slow. \\ '< should now

the margin of W'aldron's placement 
after touchdown that decided the 
game, 7-6. On paper Worcester was 
too strong and the Middle win is 
good news for the .Maroon. 

Conn. State, this week's foe. saw 
too much of Mr. Daddario and had 
to be content with substitute Scar- 
shuk's six-point offering. 

Never strong on the gridiron, Kens- 
Belear proved it again by losing to 
Vermont. The Catamounts were any- 
thing but fresh from a 'JS-IM pasting 
at the hands of Amherst and were 
playing without three of their best 

men. Brown University continued on

ed, the cheer.- at the Bowdoin game 

did tint come up to standard, The rea- 
son is that many of the freshmen 
were merely making noise ami have 
little or no knowledge of the actual 
cheers. The cheer leaders noticed 
that many students did not know the 
difference between the state yell ami 
the Massachusetts yell and were not 
quite sure of the number of tab's in 
the Lung yell or the number of times 
the locomotive i.- repeated. To .-t raight- 
en out all' these matters and make 
sure that the cheers go off better at 

the C. s. C. game, a list of the cheers

Mountain Day Still In Ofhng 

As Students Think of Winter

it at the treasurer's offlc?. 

A few scattered snowfiakes, noticed 
by spectators at tin- soccer game last 

Monday, might make one apprchen 
sive concerning Mountain Day. If the 
holiday is put off much longer, en- 
thusiasts may have to climb the moun- 
tain in hip boots and make the retain 
trip home on skis. 

Cider and Such 
Eighteen guides, returning from a 
pre view trip up Sugar Camp Trail 
last Sunday, reported "all's well" ,,n 
the mountain the hear trap- are , • 
the wood is piled high, .and the cider 
has gone to press. Everybody is war

Ward, March!"

Columbus Day was welcome to most of us as an interlude of rest or 
recreation in our recently begun studies. Aside from this the holiday did not 
evoke .my noteworthy feelings. This general indifference in Massachusetts 
Stite College and probably in every other American college, to a holiday 
of national importance affords an illustration of the apathy which American 
students have toward their nation. 

The word patriotism, today, has an unpleasant connotation, especially 
in the American college. It is associated with the chauvinistic organizations 
Of women who loudly proclaim their devotion to America, and prove it by 
waving the Bag." and by fervently singing the national anthem . or. 
still worse, it is connected with plutocratic organizations which solemnly 
assert their faith in the principles of American democracy with the very 
base and obvious purpose of retaining their own wealth and power. Yet, 
despite their justified contempt for this shoddy patriotism. American college 
students have failed to combat it by any positive attitude ot mind on their 
own part. 

One need not seek far to find a lack of deep concern for the public 
welfare Although most college students are fairly interested in great 
national political issues, they usually have no intention of taking an active 
part in any branch of politics or public service. They feel that politics and 
politicians are entirely corrupt; and. though convinced that this is a bad 
condition, they have no desire to rectify it. As a result of this stigma which 
is attached to politics, many competent and high-minded students Often do 
not seriously consider politics as a career. To bring the point closer home, 
the absence of social responsibility among college students is illustrated by 
the lack of interest in college elections. 

likewise there is abundant evidence on the college campus of an 
indifference to American traditions. Columbus Day and other holidays which 
should have great significance as landmarks in our history and should 
evoke 81) emotional response, leave us completely unmoved. It is doubtful 
whether the name of Washington or Lincoln arouses in the breast ot the 
average college student a sens:; of reverence and emulation. 

One of the great functions of a college or university, we believe, is 
to create a tradition or an atmosphere m which a healthy patriotism can 
be developed It is a patriotism, first of all, which arises from a high sense 
f devotion to the public welfare, and is everstriving by actions to benefit 
the nation or any part ol the nation. The actions ot a healthy patriotism 
should be based upon intelligent reasoning, upon the knowledge ot the tacts 
Which underlie any problem, upon tolerance, and above all upon a sense ot 
justice and morality. 

It is only through such I patriotism that a nation may hope to sun W 
,|| of the uncertainties and dangers of the present world, tor men moved 
bf these ideals will conduct an honest government, and thev will have the 
courage and vision to cope with the most difficult situations. Such patriotism 
moreover, does not result in benefits for the public welfare alone: the in 
dividual elevates his life alose the prosy by hiving achieved something node 
. i concrete There is no institution in Am-... better suited or mOP 

csrm tent than the colle** to fester such a patriotism.

France where they spent a week in 
Paris. The two most noteworthy im- 
the best time to visit the building 
was at night. 

From France they went on to Gen- 
eva where they saw the new home of 
the League of Nations. "It is really 
outside the city being situated on the 
shore of Lake Geneva." From the 
renter of the new building can be 
Been Mt. Blanc, snow-covered, and 
towering high above the quiet lake. 
From Geneva they went to Heme to 
see what is undoubtedly the most per- 
fectly preserved Medieval city in all 
Europe with its walls and massive 
masonry. From Berne they went to 
Lucerne where they engaged in some 
mild mountain climbing. They rode 
6000 feet to the summit of "Rigi 
Kulm" in the inclined railway. It 
was late in the season and already 
the mountain was covered with snow. 
Fascist Evidence 
Leaving Switzerland for Italy was 
their next journey. In Milan Prof. 
Mackimmie saw evidences of the op- 
erations of the Fascist government. 
There was a new railroad station, a 
large structure which employed func- 
tional architecture. About the 20th of 
October they moved on to Florence 
where Mr. Mckimmie planned to take 
some courses at the Florentine Uni- 
versity. They stayed in Florence for 
three months making various walking 
trips to the surrounding points. "The 
temperature was lower than in sum- 
mer but it was not cold enough to 
freeze the foliage. The country was 
beautiful even at that time of year, 
hut not nearly as colorful as I imag- 
ine it would have been earlier." The 
studies he took were courses in Italian 

History and a course in Contemporary 

History in which he hoped to learn 
about the operations <>f the Fascist 
provementS over his former visit, he

the Malmaison, the house to which 

Napoleon returned after Waterloo and 
before being exiled. Malmaison con

the life of Napoleon from the relics 
of his battles to the tiny clothes of 
his son whom he intended to have rule 
his Roman Empire. The Louvre par

CoMtinutd from P0gt 4 

paintings depicting the life at St. 

Historian's Playground 
Professor Mackimmie dashed on 
through Italy, stopped to see Pom- 
peii, went to Greece, thence to Aus- 
tria and t<> Germany where he heard 
Hitler speak to his people on Mayday. 
From Germany he hoarded a train for 
Copenhagen, Denmark, thence by boat 
to London where he saw the Corona- 
tion procession. He spent the next 
month at South Wales which he call- 
ed the Historian's playground because 
of the many relies from ancient man 
anil sabre-tooth tigers all down 
government. This course started with 
Napoleon in Elba but Napoleon never 
got out of Elba according to what he 

was able to learn from the professor. 
Mr. Mackimmie also said that the man 
in the street wouldn't talk about Fas- 
cism. There was not terrorism or fear 
in this lack of adverse comment. The 
Italian citizen was satisfied. He read 
of the nine million unemployed, the 
strikes, the beggars and hungry- 
people in the U. S. and felt thankful 
that he lived in Italy under Mussolini. 
After three months in Florence Mr. 
Mackimmie and his wife went to 
Perugia, Spoleto, and Assissi. In As- 
sissi they visited many memorials to 
Saint Francis. He also spoke of the 
magnificent frescos, pictures, and 
through the ages. Leaving England 
he returned to Quebec a year after he 
had left. Prof. Mackimmie, always a 
busy man. hurried away from his of- 
fice in the old library from which 
this trip started to attend a meeting. 
Indeed — he must be a busy man to 
see in a year what many men would 
fail to note in a lifetime of travel.

The Executive Committee of The 
Roister Doisters are actively at work 

upon the program for The Bay Stab 

Revue, which will be presented upon 
the evenings of November 12 and 13, 
One of the reasons for the revue is 
that it gives opportunity for Inde- 
pendent talent, either individually or 
in groups and either in dramatics or 
music, to enjoy a public appearance 
under favorable circumstances. There- 
fore it is in order and greatly to be 
urged that any students who have up 
their sleeves something which might 
add to this vaudeville program should 
get immediately into touch with some 
member of the Committee in regard 
to the matter. The committee is: 
John Hoar, Connie Fortin and Henrv 

Winter IMay 

President Hoar also announces that 
the society has selected its win- 
ter play. It is to be "Not Without 
Hope," and was written by the di- 
rector of the society, Professor Rand, 
with some assistance from under- 
graduate members. It is a biographi- 
cal play, featuring the famous Lake 
poets, Wordsworth and Coleridge, ami 
shadowed throughout by the French 
Revolution and the subsequent war 
between England and Fiance. The 
story of the two poets is based upon 
various data of undoubted authenticity 
but only recently made available by 
I ■ arch scholars. 

Of equal important with the poets 
is the glamorous figure of John 
Wordsworth, a brother of the poet, 
who became a ship captain at the 
age of twenty-eight and lost his life 
at sea a few years later. Th< re are

senior in college is faced .it one time or an other with the necessity of deciding 
to what line of endeavor he should devote his future. He is faced with the 
problem of how he should provide for himself in the future. He is preplexed 
by the variety of ' major departments" open to a college student, and in his 
anxiety to make the best thoite for himself be sometimes overlooks certain 
factors which should be taken into consideration. The College student should 
answer two questions about himself first. What do I like, and second, Wha!

The answer to the first question is of prime importance, and doe

economic life are drawing to an ignominious close, and the new ideal ot

tu render some useful service to his fellow men. in order to repay his debt 
to the society which provided him with his superior education. The world at

Logan Prints Show Influence 

of Kansas Prairie Scenery 



A one-man exhibition 

of realb 

memorable woodcuts by Hershel C, 
Logan l>as been bung in the Memori- 
al Building, and will remain in place 
until November l. Mr. Logan is a 
native of Kansas, and is recognised 
as one of the most up and coming 

young artists in a very active mid- 
western group. He is a member of 
the Prairie Print makers and the 
Print Makers of California, 

As a resident of Salina his sub- 
ject.- would very naturally be the mid- 
western landscape, although he does 
not confine himself solely to these, to 
witness the excellent portraits in the 
exhibition. The woodcuts are on the 
whole outstanding f<»r their detail and 
texture: having none of the stiffness 
and artificiality usually found in 

Mr. Logan's ability to portray the 
texture of landscapes, and especially 
of snow is unusual in this medium. 
His two prints, "Kaster Snow," and 
"The First Snow" being excellent ex- 
amples. Also Striking for their treat- 
ment of light are "Morning Sunlight" 
and "Fodder in the Shock." The fine- 
ness of detail in many of the wood 
cuts is almost unbelievable, as for 
instance, "Hilltop Home." 

The portraits in the exhibition are 
also notable, the one of Admiral 
Hyrd being especially likable. His 
"Christus" combines the dignity of 
the old masters with a touch of 
modernism that makes it interesting 
and worthv of study.

broken by radio music. 

In addition, the Senate will pur- 
chase a new bandmaster's uniform 
and a new baton sometime in the 
near future. This action is in line 
with the buying of several new uni- 
forms for the parading musicians last 
year by the Senate.

Continued from P.ige 2 
tion as the Spanish Civil War is at 
such a low ebb. Repeatedly, we hear 
the platitude about the future of the 
world depending upon its youth. How 
can a disinterested, indifferent youth 
take upon itself the "boil and bubble" 
of modern civilization? 

Some of the students, to whom I 
spoke, thought that, since Mr. I. ash 
was secretary of the American Stu- 
dent Union, the talk would be noth- 
ing more than a radical exhortation. 
Thus, they showed a dogmatic point 
of view, and an unwillingness to learn 
things from all angles. (The talk was 
interesting, factual, with no commun- 
istic spouting.) Mr. Lash is making 
a tour of the colleges in the country. 
When, on some other campus, he is 
asked about student reaction at Mass. 
State to the Spanish situation will 
only be able to say: "dull and un- 
interested." This, we must realize, 
certainly does not enhance the repu- 
tation of Mass. State. 

Mass. State students should realize 
that national and international cur- 
rc-nt events are forming the frame- 
work for their future, no matter how 
geographically distant and vague 
these events may seem. A charge of 
Provincialism is an insult to an edu- 
cated man or woman. Active student 
interest in affairs external to the 
boundaries of North and South Am- 
herst would accelerate the death of 
Provincialism and heighten the Intel- 
lectual status of MlM. State College.

"It is only through political d ■- 
moeracy that religion has a chance 
to survive," asserted Rabbi Milton 
Steinberg in his address upon "Relig 
ion and Democracy" before the large 
audience which attended the Vespers 
Service last Sunday. 

He opened his lecture with the 
passage from the prophet Amos: 
".Multitudes, multitudes, in the valley 
of decision." Today, he averred, we 
are in this situation, for the import- 
ant problem of choosing one of the 
three contending political systems of 
the present world, faces us. 

"It seems," the speaker said, "as 
if the temper of democracy is wing- 
ing back." He attributed this change 
of attitude to an overfamiliarity with 
democracy among Americans which 
prevented them from constantly real- 
izing that it was only through "in- 
finite pain and tears" that our pres- 
ent liberties and system of govern- 
ment was won. 

Rabbi Steinberg then went on to ex- 
amine the three competing political 
systems in the light of the social 
ideals of religion: namely, a belief 
in the divinity of man; a belief in 
the quality of all men before God; a 
desire for the reign of brotherhood 
among men. 

Communism vs. Religion 

On the basis of these values he 
found that both Communism and 
Fascism are antithetical to religion. 
Communism is a substitute for re- 
ligion, he asserted, because it has its 
revealed scripture in Karl Marx's 
Kapital. an ecclesiastical hierarchy in 
the shape of a government com- 
mission which determines what the 
true Communist doctrine is. and, 
finally, a Weltanschauung based upon 
the Old Physics and which denies that 
there is a spirit behind the world. 

Likewise, he continued, "the relig- 
ious attitude and the ideologies of the 
Fascisms are absolutely antithetical," 
for they are based upon the super- 
man idea of Nietzsche which places 
some men above the moral law, "they 
subordinate the man to the God of 
State," and they tend to create war 
by their ideas of racial superiority. 

These differences, he pointed out, 
are not only theoretical, but they con- 
flict in practical life. "It is no acci- 
dent that in Fascist lands as well as 
in Communist the Church is losing

HUM may argue otherwise, this 
year's State grid team has a good 
chance of winning games from 
Amherst and Tufts. This is no 
idle >;uess but is based on fact, 
(of si near to fact as can be 
reached in a game like football). 
I In- Statesmen have been getting 
better in both defensive and of- 
fensive football, they have be- 
come a unit, injured stars are 
coming back to the fold, and des- 
pite losses we hear squad mem- 
ber:- talking of "five in a row." 
\s this column pointed out last 
week Amherst has yet to play a 
real game. The Jeffs rolled up 
large scores against Vermont, 
Rochester and Norwich and they 
went down without a chance to 
Dartmouth. So far Lloyd Jordan's 
charges have not had a real test 
battle. They get that battle this 
week, and should come out on the 
short end against Wesleyan. 
State has played opponents with 
football names no better than those 
f the Amherst opponents, but the 
Mu nil foes have had strong teams. 
In holding Bowdoin scoreless through 
trw first half the locals showed a 
Itrong defense and last week against 
ode Island they played well losing

Rhode Island and except for Dart- 
Qeuth, Amherst has played no team 
within three touchdowns of the Ram's

A fluke foa] scored by Yale Cap- 
tain Carter in a muddy mix-up in 
front of the State goal with 1(1 min- 
utes to play gave the Blue a surprise 
2-1 win over the Statesmen, yester- 
day at New Haven. The State junior 
varsity also went down to the Vale 
attack, losing by the same score.

to Worcester Tech this Saturday fav

The Engineers lost to Conn, Stat.' 

last Week 21-6 which would point to 

a close game as the Nutmeggers top 

ped M. S. ('. by a larger count. On 
the brighter side, the Worcester team 
lost a 7-t; battle to weak Coast Guard 
and made a minus total of yardage 
the next week going down to Trinity.

The flat Franklin course was no 
obstacle for the short State captain. 
N'eJame pulled away from the pack at 
the start of the race and ran in front 
all the way. Team-mate Pickard 
turned on a kick in the last half mile 
that might have sent him in ahead 
of NeJame had there been a Tech 
man up in front. As it was, however, 
the three leaders chose to finish to-

team was sure of its footing and Car-

Is the town Of Amherst to become .i Master Highway" for Sunday 

joy riders and speed demons? 

Tin. wis the question raised in the minds of those who read 
the proposal to make Pleasant and South Pleasant streets links m a through- 
highway from Connecticut to Ne* Hampshire. The plan was explained in 
detail m a recent issue of the SpringfiM Vnion which earned a Full-page 
special article, with a map showing the proposed east west and nortli- 
SOUth turnpike. 

Tins plan, while .t would aid trahu conditions m Worcester and 
AA send a constant stream of thrOUgh-autoistS north and 

know if Joe E. Brown was a man or

Amherst Rated As Strongjworite Over Statesmen In Traditional Rivalry 


.Saturday's football meeting with Amherst will be the loth in a 

which extends back to 1SK1. The games have been held annually 

lor a long Cessation of rivalry between l l, <r and 1921. The feffmen 
a big edge in the .series with 31 wins against lo for the Statesmen, 
contests having ended in ties. 

The first State-Amhcrst game for which the ColUg'tan has any 
: was played Oct. 21, 1922. The CotUgtan article Opened as follows': 
erst Eleven Succumbs to Terrific Onslaught of M. A. C. Warriors 

"For the first time in over twenty years "the Aggie eleven 
defeated Amherst last Saturday. It was the first football game 
between the two institutions that has ever been held on Alumni 
I ield, and the result was as satisfying as the fact that we were able 
to entertain our visitors on one of the best gridirons in the east. 
Over 5000 spectators watched the annual battle between the two 
rival institutions which resulted in a 10-6 win for the home team. 
The coaches express themselves as dissatisfied with the results of 
the aerial offense which the Maroon attempted and they have 
nothing but praise for the stubborn defense of the Purple. It 
was a hard, clean contest from the start to the final whistle, with 
the ultimate outcome always in question. The teams were evenly 
matched in the first half but in the last two periods the Aggies 
plainly outmatched their opponents from the other end of town. 
In the last three periods the Jeffmen never had the ball within 
lour ehalkmarks of the Aggie goal." 

The following year State lost 7-3. Jones, "Agate star," missed a ^ 
a 10-yd. field goal by mere inches, before kicking over the crossbars 
three points before Drew, "the bad man in the enemy offense picked Tufts Drops Came to Williams

'I he "Battle of the Ages" has been succeeded in' the inter-town 

es by the "Battle of the Century" and once more the Purple and White 

Amherst has been lowered in defeat before the Maroon and White of 

::,. Through sixty minutes of gruelling football the Goremcn outplayed 

heavier Amherst eleven, made their own breaks and won by a 1 7 ro 

in before a record crowd of 7000. The M. A. C. eleven has been 

•ned the "irresistible inch worms"; slow but steady in their advance 

1 across the goal line lor the touchdown which sewed up the 

And Coast Guard Hows 
to A. I. C. 



Coming back again in 1924, the Statesmen defeated Amherst 17-7 
■- a story which read as follows: 

;id only their opponents can realize the omnipotence of each plodding 

e for a score. Their sole brilliance lay in the concerted effort mu\ 

it aggressiveness of eleven men. One of the salient features of the 

was the excellent condition of th M. A. C. team. Not a single sub- 

ition was made and no serious injury was incurred during the strugL-le. 

Agrarians were outweighed ten pounds to the man in the line and 

eight in the backfield yet the only successful offense which Amherst 

I was by the aerial route. On the other hand the home team gained 

insistently through the line and skirted the ends on a few instances for 

yardage. The Aggie tackling was the most savage demonstration 

have given this year." 

In the following two years Aggie was outclassed in hard fought 

27-0 and 21-0. In 1928 a superior State team lost to Amherst ISO 

-vet mist-blanketed field. The same score held the next year when. 

l 'hree scoreless quarters Amherst scored twice on passes. 

After being beaten 26-6 in 1930, State came back under 
Mel Taube in 1931 to win 13-12 with meteoric Hush scoring all 
the State points on 2"S and 65-yd touchdown jaunts, and plunging 
1 rigird smashing out long gains. In '32 Hush again led the States- 
men in trouncing Amherst 21-6. State lost 14-0 the following year. 
hut came back in 'Vi as the undcr-dogs to outfight ami rout a 
strong Amherst team 16-0. 

In 1035 State went down 1 v() when hlvin Wanzo, then a soph- 
SCOred twice. Last year the Statesmen led at the hall 7-6, but were 
1 13-7 when a second touchdown was again made on a pass from 
II to Coey. This year . 

Led by Amherst with a 12-2 
nver strong Wesleyan, tbe State op- 
ponents finished another week of foot- 
ball and drew a week Bearer their 
encounter with the Maroon. Major 
rival Tufts went down to Williams 
18-0 but looked Strong even in de- 
feat. Coast Guard Academy was one 
of the two service teams to fall last 
week going down to American Inter- 
national College 6-0 in a sight game, 
Friday at New London. Rensselear 
Poly continued to improve gaining a 
<>-<; tie with its up-State .New York 

St.ate football team went down 

4-0 defeat before a revamped 
Worcester Tech team last Saturday 
on Worcester's rain drenched Alumni 
Field. It was the first win of the sea 
son for tbe Engineers and left the 
Statesmen without a victory in their 
first five starts. 

State opened its lone offensive 
threat shortly after the start of the 

first quarter when Bob Perkins re- 

COVered a fumble by Lambert, who 
started at halfback for W. 1'. I. for 
tbe first time this year, on tbe En- 
gineer's 30 yard stripe. On the first 
play, Towle threw a pass over the 
center of th,. Un,. l( , '|' a ,, Tappin, 
.sophomore starter at right halfback 
for State, who was nailed in bis 
tracks on the three yard line. With 
first down, a line buck, an end run, 
and a reverse tailed to gain any 
ground, and on the fourth down 
Towle'l pass into the end y.otu 
batted down.

Taking the ball «m downs on their

eighty yard drive toward their first 
score. Lambert and Forkey made most 
of the ground on line plunges, and a

Theta Chi Awarded 
First Place Trophy 

Theta Chi, Kappa Sigma, and Q. 
T. V. were awarded trophies for first, 
second, and third places respectively 
in the interfraternity competition 
that extended through the school year 
of 193(5-1937. The cups were pre- 
sented in convocation this morning 
by Dean William L. Machmer and 
were received by Marshall Allen, pres- 
ident of Theta Chi. George Niden, 
president of Kappa Sigma; and Wil- 
liam Graham, president of Q. T. V. 

The cups are awarded each year 
to the three fraternities leading in 
scholarship, academics, and athletics, 
and are retained permanently by the 
winning fraternities. 

Late arrival of the cups has de- 
layed the announcement of this year's 
winners. Last year Kappa Sigma and 
Alpha Epsilon Pi captured first and 
second places. 


Since only about one-fourth of 
a spiritless senior class has to 
date cast ballots for class of- 
ficers, the Senate announces a 
last chance voting period for 
those seniors who have not yet 

Ballots may be obtained to- 
day Thursday, November 4, in 
the senate room, Memorial 
Building, from 1:00 to 4:00 
p. m. 

The Senate urges all those 
seniors who wish to have class 
officers to cast a vote today.

Dr. Evan F. M. Durbin, senior lec- 
turer of the London School of Eco- 
nomics, is giving a series of lectures 
this week under the auspices of the 
Institute of Intereducation. 

Dr. Durbin received a degree in 
zoology from New College, Oxford, 
but then decided to specialize in eco- 
nomics. In 1930 he received the rector- 
ship at London School of Economics, 
He is an authority on international 
politics and economic labor problems. 
His book "Purchasing Power and 
Trade Depression" is a standard on 
that subject and widely accepted by 
continental and British critics. He is 
on familiar footing with the leaders 
of labor parties of Great Britian 
and is one of the best informed men 
on workers education. 

Last evening Dr. Durbin addressed 
the International Relations Club on 
"Collective Security and the Cure of 
War." This morning in convocation 
he addressed the students on "The 
Future of the Present Industrial Sys- 
tem" and this evening at 6:30 will 
hold a discussion of "English Politi- 
cal Problems" at an after dinner 

conference at the Stockbridge House. 

Tomorrow he will lecture before the 
social science students on "The Fu- 
ture of the English Labor Party." 

As was well noticed he has I keen 
interest in puhlic affairs and an at- 
tractive and vigorous personality. 

Plans are rapidly taking form for 
the 3rd annual Massachusetts State 
College Winter Carnival which will 
be held this year on February 1 1 and

Eugen Gieringer, S.S.A. '39, are co- 
chairmen of the general executive 
committee for the carnival which is

ambitious affair yet attempted. 

Vice-chairmen for the 1938 festival 
are Robert Packard ami Fletcher 
Prouty; secretary is Jessie Kinsman; 
treasurer, Mitchell Jackson; assistant 
treasurer, Frank Healy. Stanley Flow- 
er is acting as chairman of publicity.

these committees are John McCarthy,

The Freshmen co-eds have gone 
to rack and ruin — at least two of 
them have. They're taken to 
writing poetry, and it is rumour- 
eu that some of their literary ef- 
forts are dedicated to, or have 
reached one of the boys in North 
College. It just won't do you any 
good, girls; the men in North 
College don't know how to read. 

And then there were the boys 
at Kappa Sig who were shocked 
to hear their alma mater brand- 
ed as Mass. Agricultural College 
on the early morning "Swing 
Session" over the radio. Evident- 
ly the boys got together and reg- 
istered a hot and heavy protest, 
for the next program found the 
announcer apologizing. 

According to one of our pro- 
fessors, saxaphone players are 
born and not made — which is a 
darn good argument for birth 
control. And then there was the 
goat who looked fat, but she was 
only kidding . . . Sure women can 
keep a secret — only it takes more 
of them to do it ... We have 
come to the conclusion that there 
are only two ways to get through 
college — the faculty of work, or 
the working of faculty . . . Hut we 
offer to martyrdom the dope re- 
turning to school after being ex- 
pelled and approaching the dean, 
who remarked, "I thought I ex- 
pelled you last week." To which 
our upstart answered. "You did, 
but don't do it again, because my 
Dad was plenty sore." . . . Over- 
heard Hallowe'en night: "Hor- 
rors, I forgot my haunting li- 
cense . . ."

Favorable consideration of the State College budget by the budget 
authorities of the commonwealth as well as by the legislature is necessary lor 
the maintenance of standards at our college. The budget as approved by 
the trustees at a meeting last September calls for the construction ol a woman s 
building, and a physics and classroom building. Aside trom the routine re- 
quests made annually the budget also requests appropriations lor the purchase 
of land adjoining the college property. 

Anyone acquainted with the situation here knows the need that is kit 
for l woman's building and a physics budding. One needs only look at the 
present physics budding to realize the need for a new one. 1 he growm- 
mi iber of women who seek and obtain admission to Massachusetts S lt< 
College attests the fact that a woman's building is neccsary. Looking into 
tl I'uturc. the trustees have approved the purchase of land lor the tutu • 
t: ;v.nsion of M. S. C All these things are important to the welfare ot this, 
institution. It is inevitable that the appropriations come sooner or later, if 
this college is to be maintained. 

Vet the crying need of the college for the facilities requested should 
not wait upon their chance approval by an overburdened legislature. I be 
need is immediate. The appropriations should come this year, and it will 
only come if students, alumni, and friends of the college in all parts ot the 
state show their interest in the college by speaking to then local representa- 
tives in the General Court of the Commonwealth. Members of the legislative 
bodies ,n Boston must be made to realize the position of growing importance 
tint this college holds in the lives of their constituents. It is up to all ot 
us, students, alumni, and friends, to see that the college rece.vcs .ts proper 
recognition by the budget authorities. 

They had been sitting in the swing

"Suppose you had money," she said, 
"what would you do?" He threw out 
his chest, in all the glory of young 
manhood, "I'd travel" lie said. He 
felt her warm hand slide into his. 
When he looked up, she had prone. In 
his hand lay a nickel. T'ain't funny. 

Last year 1 asked her to h- my 
wife and she nave me a e'ee'dei n -na- 
tive reply, no. Ta Ret even. I mar- 
ried her monther. Then my father 
married the girl. 

When I married the "drl's mit'her. 
f he girl became my daughter, and 
when my father married my dau«^' , - 
ter. he became my son. When my 
father married my daughter, she he- 
came my mother. If my father is my

The idea of a state supported "University of Massachusetts" has oc- 
curred many times in the past to interested and influential citizens throughout 
the state The idea .s not a new one. Almost a year ago, however, a privately 
endowed institution incorporated with the title "The Univcrs.ty of Massachu- 
setts' was reorganised, and relinquished its name. Since that time the move- 
ment to organize a State supported university has g lined impetus. 

Early last summer. Commissioner of Education R-adon announced that 
he has appointed a committee to investigate the desirability and feasibility of 
organizing such an institution. The committee was comnosed of several men, 
a number of them heads of state supported educafonal institutions. As 
Vaguely stated in the press ( commissioner Reardon's plan is to combine state 
supported educational institutions into some sort of loosely connected uni- 
versity. A more accurate and detailed statement ol the plan is not at present 

available. . 

With such a vague statement of the plan, the position ol Massac hu- 
setts State College in the proposed University can not be determined. If. bow- 
ever a University of MussacbiutUi h ai m dtsirMt, it is devrable as an 
outgrowth of this college. We have here at the State College, which attract 
students of varied interests, an excellent nuclcous lor State University \\ < 
have Ul excellent location, which allows for almost unlimited of our physical 
equipment of buildings, roads, and the like. If a university is founded in 
this state, it should have as its administrative center the present State College, 
and should be too great extent an outgrowth of this college. 

Sonny had the habit of tearing his 
pants whenever he was playing. His 
•pother, in exasperation, finally said: 
i ne next time you tear your pants 
i m going to make you fix them your- 

Sure enough Sonny came in from 
play with his pants torn. True to her 
word, his mother sent him upstairs 
to fix them. After anout an hour had 
passed and Sonny had not appeared, 
his mother went upstairs to investi- 
gate. The punts were lying on :i 
chair, but no Sonny was in sight. 
However, his mother heard a noise in 
the basement, and going to the stairs 
"ailed down: "Are voti running around 
down there without your pants?" 

"No, ma'am." a bass voice replied, 
"I'm reading the gas meter."

Wolcott Delivers Lecture On | 

Display of Own Mural Sketches 


Many Paintings Hanging in 
Mem. Building Exhibit 

The Fine Arts lecture for Tuesday, 
Nov, 2, was given by Roger Wolcott, 
a native of Amherst, though now a 
resident of Springfield, who lectured 
on his own paintings which were 
hung in the Memorial Building. 

The mam part of Mr. Wolcott's 
lecture was devoted to a discussion of 
the preliminaries of mural painting, 
a field in which he has recently been 
working. In the exhibition In the Me- 
morial Building are cartoons, rough 

.sketches, and detail sketches of some 
Of the murals that the artist has just 
completed, and with reference to 
these, Mr. Wolcott described the de- 
velopment of mural.- into completed 
form, including research for the sub- 
tect, and consideration of the sur- 
roundings in which the mural is to 
be painted. These murals have for 
their subject, the now almost extinct 
civilizations such as the Mayans, and 
the Incas, and Mr. Wolcott told many 
interesting facts about these peoples. 
He also described the process <d* 
painting a mural, ami some oJ the 
difficulties mi artist has to confront 
in enlarging his material to the prop- 
er sise. 

Leaving the subject of murals, Mr. 
Wolcott discussed some of the other 
pictures in the exhibition, such a 
tiie block prints, which are the first 
in a series of studies in the populai 
s|1 ort of skiing, which has great pos 
sibilities in action and movement. The 
landscapes take up the major portion 
of the exhibition, and these Mr. Wol- 
eotl discussed generally. All the paint- 
ings but one are of some point within 
25 miles of Amherst, which would 
make them especially interesting to 
residents of this section. The artist 
concluded with some interesting re- 
marks on the qualities of snow, and 
treatment in color in landscape paint- 
ings, and told something of his 
method of getting life and sparkle into 
outdoor scenes. 

The exhibition will continue to hang 
in the Memorial Building in order 
that everyone will have an opportun- 
ity to see it.

Music Record Club 
Provides New Album 



The Camera Club exhibit in the 
Library for the present is a collection 
of photographs from the Boston Y. 
M. C. U. Camera Club, which contains 
a great variety of subjects and com- 

The picture on the main board in 
the exhibition is a photograph of 
"S onja Henie" by Harold Orne, and 
is outstanding for its unusual sparkle 
and composition in an unposed pic- 
ture; this photograph was not in- 
tended as a portrait and was taken 
while the subject was in motion. In 
the collection are several studies out- 
standing for their light composition 
as "Fort Point Channel," by Reg. 
Smith, "Nantucket Training Ship," by 
Arthur Griffin, and an unusual shot 
of a ship by Ralph Osborne. H. B. 
Kane, who will probably put on a one- 
man show later on, has several amus- 
ing nature .studies in the collection 
such as his delightful shot entitled 
"Snail Heading West." 

Of interest from the standpoint of 
composition is "Stranger Things." by 
John Garfield, and a striking water 
study of V. Holmes, called "Reflec-

Zanetti of interest, and almost any- 

I'nder the direction of Prof. Stow- 
ell C. Coding, the Music Record Club 
is beginning its second year at Mass. 
State College. The officers for the 
v. .,, 1987-38 are: Miss Leonta Hoi 
rigan, President; George Curran, 

The Club has many new albums 
in its repertoire this year, bringing 
the total to over thirty. Among the 
newer records are: P.achs "Concerto 
in E Major," played by Yehudi Menu- 
hin and the Paris Symphony Orch es- 
tra; Sibelius' "Symphony No. 1 in E 
Minor"; Hrahm's "String Quartet in 
C Minor"; and Mozart's "Symphony 
Mo. 39 in E Flat." 

hTe club functions upon a lending 
library system of records, and allows 
the lover of classical music to bor- 
row his or her favorite selections and 
listen to them at home. The proced- 
ure of record-lending is quite simple. 
A fee of one dollar per semester al- 
lows the member to keep an album 
of records for two weeks, after which 
time a fine of two cents per record is 
imposed. Any member of the college 
community is eligible for membership; 
information can be had from Profes- 
sor Coding or at the main desk in 
the Goodell Library. 

As the Club increases its library, 
it hopes eventually to surpass the 
Carnegie Collection. Since the latter 
is static, the Record Club furnishes 
an opportunity for Us members to 
hear more modern music— the Club 
wdl change and adapt itself to keep 
pace with all the modern scientific 
improvements in the art of recording.

he can not be silent. 

He asserted that there were two 

types of people who fail to under-

him from their fellowship because lie

Derby Will Take Seven 
Frosh To New Kim lands 

Coach L. L. Derby will take 
seven freshmen runners along 
with his varsity to the New 
England Intercollegiate Cross- 
country Meet at Franklin Park, 
Boston this Saturday. The frosh 
will be paced by Putney who 
has been outstanding for the 
little Statesmen so far this sea- 

Others of the class of 1941 
who will make the trip include 
Kalph Bunk, former captain of 
Beverly High School who so far 
this season has not lived up to 
his reputation. Ian Malcolm, 
ranking No. 3 runner, will be 
scheduled to give the first two 
locals a battle for their posi- 
tions while Tillson, Howland, 
and Anderson are the other 
Maroon runners who will figure 
in the point scoring. 

Little is known of the team 
strength of the freshmen of the 
other colleges except that 
Northeastern has one of the 
strongest teams in years and is 
favored to cop the crown.

Coming here this Saturday, an un-

tangle with Larry Hriggs' twice-de- 
feated booters on Alumni Field. 

Showing little in three previous 
starts, the Blue and Cold dropped 
games to Worcester Tech and Hard 
College, and won over mediocre Conn. 

Coach McCloud's team will be at 
full strength against the locals Sat- 
urday. Captain Krnie Schmid, recov- 
ered from a cracked knee received in 
the Worcester Tech game, will be at 
his backfteld post, and Lloyd Kales 
will be in the fray after being side- 
lined with a practice injury. 

McClottd feels that his club should 
play its best garni- of the season here 

Saturday, now that his green new* 
comem are shaken down in the plays, 

and his lettermen are hack in the fold 
after being laid up with early sea on 

n juries. 

The Trinity line-up will probably 
find Gorman at goal, Johnson and 
Schmid at fullback; Insley, McCee, 
and Hall at half; Cook and Sehl as 

\ lugs; and Goodrich, Ewing, and 

Spencer at forward. 

The Maroon line-up will contain the 
ame crew that has accounted for the 
three local wins of the season.

Gib Willis of Amherst is High 

Scorer with Three Goals — 

Kodda Held 

Scoring twice in the second over- 
time period, an undefeated Amherst 
soccer team handed the Maroon its 
second loss of the year, 4-2, last Fri- 
day on Hitchcock field. The Purple 
win toppled the locals to fifth place 
in the New Kngland Intercollegiate 
Soccer League. 

Amherst drew first blood, when Gib 
Willis, who accounted for three of 
the four Sabrina tallies, beat Bob 
Feinburg on a sudden downfield 
thrust. The second Amherst score 
came midway in the second period 
when Stott cleared a State shot and 
tossed the ball out to Smith for a 
Smith-Olds-Willis pass to put the 
Jell's ahead by two points. 

Bob Cain, local outside right, took 
a pass from Don Osley in the dosing 
minutes of the first half to catch 
Stott oir guard. The Maroon tied up 
the ball game early in the third 
period when Tom Lyman sunk a long 
drive into the corner of the cage 
from far out. 

After the first extra period resulted 
in no score, the Sabrinas' Smith and 
Willis hammered in successive goals 
for the winning margin. 

Outstanding Purple players were 
Gib Willis at center, who established 
himself near the top of league scor- 
ers by his three-goal field day, and 
Jack Kay at center half, who held 
Bud Kodda, stellar local center, in 
check all day.

than any time this season, the Mas

hacks who were all injured in the 
Amherst fame, Others out are line 
men Stan Finik, Jam Payson and 
Paul Putnam who also were hurt in 
the 41-U beating. 

A hold-over injury is that of Al 
Smith, out since the Conn. State 
game. Kiel has again injured his 
ankle, Towle has a charley-horse, San- 
tucci has a injureu hip, Finik has 
three broken ribs, Payson has a in- 
jured collarbone while Putnam is out 
for the rest of the season with a 
sprained right arm. 

Tomorrow's game will be the first 
time the Statesmen have played un- 
der lights while th.- Academy has 
used the arcs twice before this year. 
Coast Cuard has not had a success- 
ful season but holds a win over Wor- 
cester Tech something the Maroon 
was two touchdowns away from. Last 

time out the Guardsmen lost a ?-<> 

decision to American International. If 
the locals were even near full 
Strength this would give tin States- 
men a even ranking at New London 
but in view of the many injuries. 
Coast Guard has a decided edge. 

The starting line-up for the locals 
depends a great deal on how well the 
injured stars recover and bow well 
unknown material has shown in prac 
tice this week. In the line.

After showing great strength in 
the Connecticut Valley run, the State 
harriers will visit Franklin Park in 
Boston, this Saturday, to bid for a 
top mark among the Eastern colle e 
teams. Seven men led by Larry Pick- 
ard, Captain Mitch NeJame and Obie 
Ingram will be out to give State a 
higher ranking in the New Kngland 
Cross-country championships than the 
Derbymen were able to gain la t year. 

Last year's champion, Zamberelli 
of Northeastern will not be on hand 
to defend his crown so the title will 
be open to all comers. The team 
crown will be a fight between BoW« 
doin, Maine, New Hampshire and 
.Northeastern with the Granite stat- 
ers a slight favorite. 

The locals have not the proper 
strength to annex a top position but 
are strong enough to cause the land* 
ers lots of trouble. In Captain Ne- 
Jame, Larry Pickard and Obie In- 
gram the Statesmen have a front- 
running trio but to gain a strong New 
Kngland ranking both Mike Little 
and Kv Scholz will have to finish 
stronger than they have in the past.

An innovation which promises to 
be popular this year will be the dou- 
ble presentation on November 12 and 
13 of the annual Bay State Revue. 
As has been the custom in the past, 
it will be offered to the student body 
as a Social Union program on Nov. 
12. On the following evening, the 
show will be repeated, this time for 
the edification of the fathers and 
their Dad's Day hosts. 

Best Talent 

The Roister Doister committee, 
sensing renewed student interest in 
the informal program, hopes that this 
year's Revue will offer the best of 
talent. Any student or student group 
interested in taking part in this en- 
tertainment is asked to confer with 
Professor Rand, faculty advisor, or 
with members of the Roister Doister 
Committee, John Hoar, Constance 
Fortin and Henry Elkind.

The Revue originated just after the 
war, persumably as a means of re- 

leasing the gay spirits of the stu- 
dents just returned from France. 
As long, moreover, as agriculture was 
foremost in the college, there was an 
abundance of zest for the ingenious 
nonsense of which the Revue was 
comprised. But when science and the 
liberal arts grew stronger in the 
academic life of the college, sophis- 
tication made its way among the stu- 
dents, and their enthusiasm for par- 
ticipation in the frivolous program 
waned to such an extent that the 
Roister Doisters have been on the 
point of abandoning the Revue for a 
less spontaneous program. 

The last year, however, has ap- 
parently brought a return of good 
spirits, particularly among women 
students; and a worthwhile program, 
including selections by the band and 
glee club, and a one act play to be 
presented by the Roister Doisters, 
will be the result of their effort. 

Texas Christian University students 
have worn out three editions of Smily

The Horticultural Show this year attracted more people than has 
ent ever held at Massachusetts State College. The total attendance 
as well as all three daily records, was broken. 
The total attendance of 23,751 surpassed by more than 9000 the 
us high mark of 14,468 set in 1935. Attendance figures for each of 
rae days were greater than those of former years. Friday afternoon 
renin*, 2484 viewed the exhibits; Saturday 5121; Sunday 13,209 
-. the most ever to attend any event at the college. 
The show was one of the most attractive ever held. The flower 
sponsored by the Holyoke and Northampton Florists' and Cardeners' 
ation was one of the features. Many student exhibits were very 
ire!! planned.

The theme of the lecture holds a popular appeal because it repre- 

.r,:- an approach to present day "swing". Mr. Haggin says: "To most 

people jazz means the tune of Gershwin or Kern or Porter as performed 

in a set arrangement by a large band. This lecture is concerned with the 

imaginative, creative performances by small groups of the finest jazz 

roloista who improvise variations on these tunes, and whose performances

Yesterday the whole world celebrated the armistice of the "war 
to end wars," and yesterday's newspaper headlines announced "Japanese 
aim Nanking Drive.'' Far from freeing the world from the war menace. 
the last seems to have been the forerunner and perhaps the cause 
of many more to come. There has been hardly a year since 1918 when 
there hasn't been an armed conflict in some part of the world. Today we 
find armies engaged in l wo significant parts of the globe ... in a "civil" in Spam. \n<\ in a distinctly aggressive conflict in China. 

The world has not yet learned the lesson taught it by wars in the . . . that nothing has ever been settled permanently by armed con- 
flict. The Kranco-Prussian War. the Russo-Japanese war. and many others 
are even now still to be settled in our day, in spite of the bloody sacri- 
fices made by the men of those times. The world at large is still deluded 
by the militarists fallacy of preparedness. 

Two wrongs have never made a right, and two heavily armed 
antagonistic nations have nevei contributed to the peace of the world It 
we can free our minds from the web of modern muddled thinking, we 
can see (he ludicrous nature of the idea that a people armed to the teeth 
arc an insurance against destructive warfare. Preparedness by one nation 
inevitably leads to an armament, race between that nation and its neighbor- 
ing competitors. We have all seen and are still feeling the effects of the 

world wide armaments race which preceded the last war. Expansion ol 
armaments, like all other types of expansion, reaches a limit. That limit, 
reached when military expenditures become burdensome, and a partially 
mobilized people unmanageable, is war. 

As armaments increase more power is necessarily vested, in the 
warlords ol a country. More responsibility is assumed by these men who 
see things not in the light of the civilian mind, but in relation to wartime 
activities'. Wc see this to be true in the militaristic countries of Germany 

and lap. in. Present day mobilisation has been reduced to such an exact 

science that a nation can be prepared for war in as short a time as 1 i days. 
In such a set up, noun an important, and anxious chieftains are unwilling 
to wait until every effort to settle international affairs peacefully is made. 
s ( , with an increase in armaments war becomes not only more remote, 
but a more deadly certainty. 

With present day war technique, the notion o( preparedness acting 
as an antidote of war. has become outmoded. Let us keep faith with those 
who lie asleep and do all in our power to reduce the menace of another

Added to Staff 

Due to the fact that this year the 
course in English has been broadened 
to include all of the Stockbridge stu-

a new member, Charles N. DuBois. 

Mr. DuBois has had an extremely 
interesting and varied training. He

ma in 1929. He then attended Middle- 
bury College in Middlebury, Vermont,

tended the University of London in 
England, receiving his diploma in 
English language and literature from 
there in 1986.

organized this year to take over the 
teaching of English in the two year

Stockbridge students, Mr. DuBois has 
one section of four year freshmen.

Mrs. Margueritte H. Pro urged her 
audience "to dig the wells our fath- 
ers dug and dig them deeper" in 
her speech at the Vespers Service. 

Speaking with vitality and humour, 
Mrs. Pro enumerated the following 
as the well which the present gener- 
ation had to dig: 1. Respect for the 
printed page, for there is no fullness 
of action without breadth of reading; 
'2. Othermindedness, by which we can 
understand the attitudes of our an- 
tagonists; ."i. Prayer which becomes 
meaningful when one understands the 
paradox of prayer: that is, believing 
one will get what one asks for yet 
not knowing that one's wish will not 
be fulfilled, for prayer results in a 
"larger return"; 4. Personal respon- 
sibility from which democracy and 
the church bloom.

Massachusetts State College is at- 
tempting to expand its governmental 
information and research service for 
the purpose of further extending its 
educational program and its services 
to government units. A research li- 
brary, consisting of government docu- 
ments and other material concerning 
N'ew England and Massachusetts, has

this plan and is now on the mailing 
lists of many national and local re-

ly has increased in size to a four- 
page insertion from the previous two- 
page Collegian addenda.

ful to the music-lover, and guide for 
the musically bewildered; the book- 
review section has been enlarged; an 
informal column of literary news of 
interest will appear; illustrations will 
serve to enliven the paper. An article 
on war-torn Spain, showing the his- 
torical background and causes of the 
Civil War, will be featured in the 

The short story contest, previously 
announced, was cancelled indefinitely, 
due to lack of contributions; but 
some of the contributions deemed 
worthy will appear in print. If enough 
contributions are received by the 
third edition, the contest will per- 
haps be renewed.

State harriers will meet the strong 

est f,,e on the schedule this Saturday 

over the local hills and dales, when 

Rensselaer Poly visits Amherst to 

bring down the curtain on a success- 
ful Massachusetts season. 

The Maroon will again present 
strongest five in Larry I'ickard, ( 
tain Mitch N'e.lame, Obie 1 
Mike Little and Ed Slater. The other 
two State starters will piobainy be 
Larry Bixby and Charles Slater. 
Either of these two has a better than 
outside chance of gaining the tilth 
spot for the Derbymen and pushing 
Ed Slater back into the also-rans. 

After a mid-season slump the En- 
gineers from Troy have regained 
their championship form and promise 
to give the Statesmen their hardest 
race of the year. Last week K. I". I. 
downed Worcester Tech and the week 
before gained a 22 -83 win over a fair 
Middlebury stpjad. 

Although not up to their old form, 
the Rensselaer wins have been of de- 
cisive nature with Captain Hitchcox, 
who doubles as coach, finishing in 
front. Against Middlebury Hitchcox 
won the race in the slowest time over- 
turned in on the Troy course by a 
varsity runner in favorable weather 

conditions, his time of 2f:56, how- 
ever, was good enough to give him 
a long lead over Cushmarr and Post 
of the Vermont institution. R. P. I. 
team Strength came into play and 
gave the Engineers the meet as the 
next seven men were Rensselcar har- 
riers. Fourth was captured by 
O'Rourke foil. .wed by Head, Koopman, 
Conkling, Gieaker, Haver and Dugan. 
Acting in his coaching capacity. 
Hitchcox decided that, due to the 
slowness of the squad these last few- 
weeks as compared t., tnC early see 

son record, the runners would have 

only light Workouts to prepare for 
the State run.

State's much jinxed grid men will be 
out I'm- their first win of the season, 

Saturday on Alumni Field, when they 
take on a strong Rensselaer club be 
fore a large Dad.-' Hay crowd. The 
Troj team is the strongest in years 
and will he ,,ut to make amends for 
the 40-0 beating Eb Caraway's men 
pinned on them last season. 

The .Maroon is thought by many to 
he a jinxed club, as demonstrated by 
last weeks' loss to Coast Guard after 
tw.i touchdowns had been called back. 
Jinxes won't mean much in the K. I'. 
I. game, however, as the Troy team 
has been fighting a State boogey for 
a long time. It is very rare that an 

Engineer team has beaten State, even 

when rated at eipial Strength. 

In view ..f the u. p. |. ,. V( . n battle 
with strong Union, the Engineers will 
be slightly favored to edge the locals 

but if the Maroon shows any of the 
offensive power that the officials at 

New London failed to recognize, the 
outcome may start the chapel b. II 
ringing in State's first grid victory. 

The Statesmen will probably start 
the same team that played so well 
against the little navy. Howie Rudge 

and cliff Morey at end, Bloomberg 

and Captain Sievers at tackle, Bo- 
berge and Linden at guard, Collins 
at center, Nidon and Towle at half, 
Irzyk at quarter, and Santucci at full. 
Hill Itullock, Walt Zajchowski, Howie 
Steff, RUBS HaUCk, Bob Packard, John 
Blaeko, and Hob Perkins should also 
see a lot of action. 

The Engineers will line up with 
Fink and Carlson at ends; Richardson 
and Hentley, tackles; Kingsley and 
Baumann at guard; Rick Smith at 
center; Shako, quarterback; Ward 
and Magyar, halfs; and Andrews at 

fullback. The Engineers have a strong 

replacement but for the most ,, a il 
have to depend orr their starting line 
up. In Abbe, a sophomore full, R. P. 
I. has a running back who has shown 
better this season than starter. An 

drews. Abbe eras tin- be-t Engineer 
player on the field against Alfred 
and looked good last week as Worces- 
ter Tech was pinning the New York- 
ers by two touchdowns. 

R. I'. I. has a hard-running attack 

and showed it to good advantage 
against Worcester, last week. The 
losers were as strong as the victors 
but wr-re riot able to put ..n a Strong 
attack inside the Worcester IwenU 
yard line.

ication will be written by Professor 
Dickinson's associate and friend Pro-

The action of the Hoard was 
prompted in (Teat measure by its 
realization of Professor Dickinson's 
long-continued services to the various 
Academic Activities of our College 
and hence to the student body as a 
Whole. The Hoard was moved to this 

action also because of its recognition 
<>f the Important part that Professor 

Dickinson has played in the shaping 
of student character through his pa- 
tient and steady guidance of the stu-

him for advice and assistance in the 

performance of their duties. 

W ell-known 

Professor Dickinson, who was grad- 
j uated from the Mass. State College 
in HUD, has been closely connected 
with its Academic Activities since his 
undergraduate days, and has served 
them as Financial Adviser since. 

During this long period. Professor 
Dickinson has enjoyed the confidence 
of the student managers and has been 
increasingly popular with them. 

Professor Dickinson's other connec- 
tions with the Mass. State College 

have been varied and valuable to the 

institution. In 1919-1920, during a 
leave of absence, he was Instructor of

The action ot Senate- last Tuesday night when it instigated a pond 
party conducted under mob rule is to be regretted Mid censured. The Sen- 
ate, the elected leaders ot the student body, found it necessary to call to 
"trial " a group of J2 freshmen whom they thought needed punishment 
for infraction of a Senate rule governing the wearing of Frosh caps. 

Whether it was advisable to punish the freshmen, or not, is of 
little consequence now, but the fact remains that the method employed 

by the Student Senate was hardly in keeping With the dignity ot that body. 

Mob action is at all times dangerous to the physical well-bein^ ot those | ^ To b<1 ,, u hlishod in three parts, may 

involved. Mob action symbolizes all that is contrary to American tradition. , M . four i),.,„. m |ing.) 
Unintelligent mob action does not belong on a college campus. 

There may be little doubt that some of the men called before the 
Senate need to be tamed," for their own good and for the <^ood ot their 
class. But if the Senate felt that it was its duty to impress" the freshmen, 
any action taken should have been conducted by the Senators, and b) no 
out else on campus. If the Senate felt its duty strongly it should not have 
relinquished its authority, after a mock trial, to an excited group ot about W rawthar- -Chief 
I hundred men. That the Senate did effectively relinquish its authority. | (Veelyings 
after it escorted" the freshmen to the mob, is seen by the fact that several 
individual Senators expressed their regret for the hair-cutting which they 

could not control. 

Mob psychology, the psychology of lynching gangs is dangerous. 

It spreads easily, cannot be controlled, and calls forth all that is undesirable 

in mans brutish nature. It certainly has no place at a college where reason 

should prevail, and where students are supposed to be prepared tor intelligent 

The Senate should bear this in mind when it takes action again.

• the editor of the Collegian: 

It is rumored on campus that 
the military unit is to parade at 
the football game on Saturday. 
The purpose of the said parade 
seems to be a bit obscure: on the 
the one hand, we are told that 
the military department wishes 
to give much needed support to 
the team; on the other, we have 
it on no less authority than that 
of Colonel Applington himself 
that the potential soldiers will 
"put on a good show." While we 
have no doubt that these fresh- 
men will put on a good show, we 
doubt that it will be such as to 
flatter the military department. 
Furthermore, we do not ap- 
prove of this apparent partiality 
to a single department. Is it not 
possible that Dr. Torrey would be 
pleased to parade his botany 
class, duly equipped with note- 
books and buckwheat plants; and 
is there any reason to slight 
Dean Lanphear, his Orientation 
students, and his window-stick ? 
It is our opinion that care should 
be taken not to confer such fav- 
ors as marching at a football 
game on one department, to the 
neglect of others. 

Yours, for the preservation 
nf democracy on this campus,

"Our citizens must give their most earnest consideration to the prob- 
of education. With tins m mind, it is helpful, periodically, to direct 
our attentions to a (school) system which is an integral part of our national

leadership." These are words of Covernor Hurley in his prod,

tion Week, 'lhesc are the sentiments of every person interested in the 
welfare of our democratic form of government. 

The problem of education does not end when we have trained men 
and women lor effective work in primary and secondary schools. The 
problem does not end when our colleges have procured able men tor their 
Malts When all this has been done, the citizens ot a state must make it 
possible for their chosen educators to teach without undue restraint. Their 
chosen educators must be able to discuss and evaluate ideas freely with their 
students. Tor the students of today in order to be able to cope intelligently 
with the problems of tomorrow must have an understanding of the prob- 
lems they must face. 

It is to the task ot insuring freedom ot expression in our schools 
and colleges (that same freedom guaranteed to everyone but our teachers) 
that all liberal and democratic people should dedicate themselves.

Citadel by Cronin 

Passage by 

Little Brothers 

Mid Sister- 


The Governor of Massachusetts, 

Hon. Charles F. Hurley, has made a 
strong appeal to the Students of Mas- 
sachusetts colleges to lower their 
highway accidents records, especially 
<luring the four months in which the 
Commonwealth is endeavoring to 
check motor vehicle fatalities on its 
highways. Then' is every justifica- 
tion for this request. 

Students attending Massachusetts 

'"lieges have not established an en- 
viable record since the opening of the 
school year. It had hardly begun 
when the son of the Governor of 
Maine, a student at Williams Col- 
lege, was killed in an automobile 
crash with a fellow student ;it the 
wheel. Before the end of October, a 
Harvard student crashed to his death 
in a car also driven by a college man. 
Between these two dates, several stu- 
dents were injured through the care 
less or reckless operation of the car 
in which they were riding. 
Speed at Fault 
The three factors involved in these 

college accidents are speed, fatigue, 

and inattention. These factors are 
very closely related. Speed, especially 
when too fast for the conditions of 
night driving or stormy weather, of- 
ten sends the car off the highway at 
a sharp curve. It is responsible for 
the killing of many pedestrians be- 
cause the motorist out-drives the 
lighted path of his headlights. It is 
fatigue that causes a driver to doze 
for a moment, or, through inatten- 
tion, fail to note a vehicle that has 
come to a stop just ahead in the same 
lane of travel. Hut it is speed, often 
increasing under these circumstances, 
that results in the fatal crash. 

Truck drivers who are forced to 
be on the highway throughout the 
hours of darkness know a lot about 
the threat and hazard of fatigue. 
College students, who ought to have 
Intelligence comparable to that of a 
truck driver, even if they lack his 
experience, appear to pay little at- 
tention either to fatigue or speed 
when completing a long 


Student Committee 
The appalling record of motor ve 
hide accidents in the United States 
in Massachusetts alone, 52K persons 
were killed ami 34,999 injured in the 
first nine months of the current year 
—has created a problem as yet un- 
solved. Governor Hurley has not only 

asked mo officials and leading citi 

tens to serve upon a committee study- 
ing this problem, but he has appointed 
a Committee of 20, comprising col- 
lege students, to gain a better co- 
operation of the Student body. The 
registrar of motor vehicles, who is 
chairman of the campaign committee, 
has directed that a most searching 
investigation be made of every fatal 
accident occurring hereafter in which 
a student is involved. 

This article has been prepared with 
the approval of the college commit- 
tee. The public has a right to expert 
sound judgment and responsibility in 
those who are being trained for 
leadership in business or political 
affairs. A lack of these two qaulitles 
when human life is Involved, raise.; 
a serious question as to whether such 
a person is destined for such leader

Professor Osmun, head of the state 

College botany department, stated 
that thi> basic course in botany here 
is among the best in New England. 
He asserted that many student.- 
have majored

Some men who have been very 
important in the field of botany have 
graduated from M. S. C, among them 
the late Professor David I'enhollow. 
professor of botany at McCill Uni- 
versity Co,- many years previous to 
Ins death, and Professor George 
Stone, former head of the depart- 
ment of botany at this college. 

Clark Hall, the building which 
houses the department of botany, was 
named for W. H. Clark, president of 
M. A. C. and the first professor of 
botany here. He conducted the fa 
moua experiment measuring the work- 
ing strength of a growing squash. 

Professor Osmun recently received 
a letter from Miss Carn-le Anderson, 

who received her M.S. degree here 

and spent two years as an instructor 
in the botany department She is now 
st inlying for her doctor's degree in 
botany at Cornell University. Miss 
Anderson reported that Dr. Carl S. 
(Juterman, M. S. ('., i;»25. who re- 
ceived his D.Sc. at Cornell and be 
<:une a member of the staff ..f plant 
pathology there, is now assistant dean

Osmun furnished a list of a few ,,f

employed professionally as teachers 
or research workers.

Portrait of Coed Among Those 
in Memorial Building Exhibit 


Angelina Stevens' 
elude Pastels 


and Oils 



The current exhibition hanging in 
the Memorial Building) la a collection 
of pastel portrait.-, and oil paintings 

l»y Angelina V. Stevens, and is an 
extremely interesting collection. 

The portraits arc the most out- 
standing part of the exhibition; par- 
ticularly for their freshness and glow- 
ing colors, which are attractive and 
pleasing to the eye. The artist has 
chosen, for the most part, young 
models, who are best suited for her 
youthful style. The pictures are nat- 
ural and likeable. (It might be men- 
tioned here that a portrait of one of 
the co-eds is in the exhibition.) 

The oil paintings are in great con- 
trast to the pastels, not only in sub- 
ject, but also in color treatment. Still- 
lifes, chiefly floral studies, are the 
main subject of her oils, and they 
are treated in an almost somber man- 
ner; even the oil study of children's 
toys gives the impression of heavy 
formalism. The two impressionistic 
landscapes, however, show the same 
sense of sparkling color that is in 
the pastels. 

The exhibition on the whole is in- 
teresting for its content and con- 
trasts, and well worth-while.

work the Collegiate

Thursday as announced 
rive at State Saturday. 

The magazine will be handled by 
Frank Wing '40, publicity agent for 
State College. Individual copies may- 
be obtained at Theta Chi while Wing 
will visit dormitories, fraternities and 
sororities to gain subscriptions for 
the magazine. There are more than 
two thousand subscribers already, 
despite the fact that the Review has 
yet to appear. 

Material in the Review is of inter- 
est to the 75,000 students who attend 
the sixty-odd New England colleges.

The present exhibition of photo- 
graphs in the Library, is a collection 
of prints taken from the Camera Craft 
Competitions which are held each 
year by the Camera Craft Magazine. 
and although primarily for American 
photographers, attract people from 
many parts of the world. The compe- 
titions offer five awards in each of 
two classes, amateur class, and ad- 
vanced class: and these outstanding 
photographs are sent on exhibition 
around the country. Each photograph 
is accompanied by special data about 
the process and by the criticism of | 
the judges of the competition. 

The subjects of the photographs 
are many, as would be expected, an 
the different types of treatment of 
theme are well demonstrated in this 
unusual collection of prints, each one 
,.f which represent the best in its 
particular fieltt. Although further 
criticism than that already given with 
the photographs would seem a hit 
superfluous, some of the pictures seem 
more outstanding than others. For 
.sample, no one can deny the great 
attraction of the unusual photograph 
by Korth, entitled, "Portrait of a 
Cat." <>r the strange and interesting 
composition of Reisman's "Interim." 
•Still Life," by Hiromu Kira is out- 
standing in its field for its striking 
treatment of lighting, and "Wind- 
Etched Sand" by Blew, for its strange

David Morton was doubtless re-

of Amherst. With the appearance of 
the Collegian Quarterly, however, the 
same spell would seem to be upon 
lesser lights — the various M. S. C. 
students who have made literary 

The "Poem of the Month" featured 
by the Collegian, has encouraged 
poetic endeavor, and some of our 
more recent campus poets are Fran- 
cis Smith. Sandra Gulben, Dorothy 
Nurmi, and Shirley Goldberg. 
Rosen Leads 
Sidney Boson ':'.'.», is the author of 
two new poems appearing in the 
volume "Contemporary American Men 
Poets," and has also had a poem ac- 
cepted by the magazine Opinion, a 
journal of Jewish Arts and Letters. 
Recently, though the efforts of Sid- 
ney Rosen, there has been revived 
on campus a group which meets for 
the reading of their original poetry. 
The premiere, last Friday night of 
Louis Breault's "Make Relieve Ange 
line" is only one instance of the inter- 
est shown by State alumni and stu- 
dents in writing drama. Next Tues- 
dav at 4:30 in the M huilding, the 

Fine Arts Council will present "Maids 
in a Muddle," a one-act play by Bar- 
bara Strode, now a senior at M. S. C.

For years students have been writ- 
ing and directing their own produc- 
tions for Bay State Revues. The 
"Aggie Revue" for 1929 featured a 
movie entiitled "Aggie Men Are 
Gathered." Professor Rand and Neil 
C. Robinson '28 were the scenario 
writers for this melodrama depicting 
life on the campus. 

A musical comedy in two acts en- 
titled "Let's Go Nutty" was pre- 
sented in 1933 and offered something 
new in the way of student achieve- 
ment. Both the words and music of 
the 11 songs included in the comedy 
were written by students. W. Grant 
Dunham '35 was responsible for the 
musical scores, while Thurl Brown, 
Fred Nesbit, Donald Chase '34, W. 
Grant Dunham and Bernice Dolan 
'35 collaborated in writing the words. 
Song hits from "Let's Go Nutty" 
are Victor Victorious, Let's Go Nut-

mained in tht capacity until 1930. 
In addition, from 1923 to 1931, he

In the Physical Education Huild- 
ing, this week, is featured an exl 
bition of pastels by Walter WilUrd 
Whittum '25, an alumnus of this & 

The collection is outstanding ptj 
ticularly for its brilliance of colors, 
for Mr. Whittum not only seems to 
have captured the secret of "MaxfleW 
Parish blue," but he is adept at por- 
traying hard sunlight, on brightly 
colored houses and landscape. Also 
in the collection are a variety of pas- 
tels of water scenes in which the ar 
tist has toned down his colors some- 
what, and has achieved some very 
nice effects, especially in those that 
portray boats in the water. S 
of the pastels are more conservative 
pictures of very familiar scenes, such 
as the one of a block of stores, prob- 
ably in Springfield. 

The exhibition is rather different 
than the others that have been in the 
Physical Education Building recent- 
lv, and should prove interesting.

A stream in Southern Oregon . . . the 
place held a quiet fascination. A soft south 
wind rustled the scattered leave.-, of the tall 
COttonwoodl along the bank. The sunset was 
very quiet, very beautiful. An exquisitely 
tinted orange sky blended subtly into the 
pale azure of early evening;. The breeze bore 
the merest whiff of pungent wood smoke from 
the oblong circle ol gray tepees juM Up 
around the bend . . . 

My legs were numb from long immersion 
m the cold stream.when 1 climbed up the 
gravelly bank and paused to take down my 
My rod. Perhaps, while I was here, 1 would 
stop to see about a pair of moccasins. 

As I approached the great gray cones, 
a small shaggy bronc shield away to the 
end of his stake rope. I walked past the outer- 
most teepee slowly. A short buck crouched 
out of the entrance; I nodded, indifferently, to 

"Catch any fish?" he asked, deliberately. 
His tone reflected scornful amusement at niy 
delicate equipment. I nodded again, indifferent- 
ly as possible, and opened my creel. He vis- 
ibly picked up interest at seeing the several 
large rainbows. 

"Want them?" I asked. He took the creel 
wordlessly; 1 followed him into the tepee. 

Typical family , . . Several squat bucks 
around the fire. Sultry, smoky atmopshere. 
Numerous sqaws napping on rugs back among 
the shadows. Colorful robes. A multitude of 
interesting odds and ends hung or lay about 
singly or heaped up. The smoke curled upwards 
to wander out at the top. Stars showed 
through the opening. Someone in the shadows 
rustled, and sibilant whisperings occasionally- 
broke into low talk. 

We sat quietly, peacefully. They were 
politely waiting for me. I sensed that. I reach- 
ed out towards the feet of the nearest buck. 

"Good moccasins! Elk?" One of them nodded. 

"Yotl from camp?" My turn to nod. "None 
a these back Ka.-t That was almost a 

statement; however, 1 nodded. 

"No. Most of the ones we have in the 
East are thick, oil-tanned cowhide, made by 
machines. — They even put soles on 'm!" 

A grin started with the buck opposite 
and went around the circle. The whispering 
in the .shadows increased. They were taking 
in i-\iT\ woid. Things were beginning ti« 
warm up. 

"How d'you like this place good fishing, 

"They think we still scalp 'em back East, 

This and much more. Within twenty min- 
utes the squaws had moved out of the shad 
OWS and now and then interspersed short .-en 
tences into the conversation. Their language 

was low. modulated, .soft. No harsh sounds 
as in English speech. A few small children 
sleepily sat up in their lobes, smiled shyly 
at me, and whispered what might have been 
"funny man" to .each other. 

The rest fell silent as tne elder buck con 

ferred with one of the squaws about mocca 

"One dollar," finally said the buck in a 
tone which implied that he was sorry to have 
to charge that much. 

"That'll be great!", I assured him. "And 
can she make them like this?" And so on, 
until it was late and I had to leave. 

They fell silent again, as 1 said goodnight 
all around and croauched out of the low open 


The moon was up. Shadows, tepees, cotton> 
woods, the rippling stream, all merged per 
fectly, in my new-found peace of mind. 1 
breathed the cool air deeply. Civilization, 
ranting, roaring, smashing, heartbreaking — 
was far, far away. I thrilled suddenly at light 
footsteps behind me. A slender young girl, 
her eyes sparkling in the moonlight, held out 
my creel, still full, and smiling shyly mur- 
mured. "You forgot your trout."

claimed Kmperor of France. For almost a 
de< ade, he succeeded in converting most of 
Europe into a French Empire, until, in 1K14, 
he was disastrously defeated and forced to 

At this time, however, the royalist party- 
was so powerful in Franc, that it was able 
to place Loltis XVIIl, and, after him, Charles 
X, upon the throne. But Charles, not as wise 
as his predecessor, became so abolute and so 
tyrannical a ruler that in 1890, he too was 
compelled to resign. Thereupon, the dogged 
royalists offered to France Louise-Philippe, 
the "citizen king" who ruled quietly as a 
liberal constitutional monarch until 1848, when 
the anti-royalists proclaimed the second re- 
public. Louis-N'apoleon became the Republic's 
first president. Immediately, he demanded the 
repeal of the law forbidding the chief execu- 
tive to succeed himself. When this was re- 
fused, by force of arms he dissolved the as- 
sembly and drew up a new constitution, mak- 
ing himself president for ten years. In the 
next year, 1852, he established the second 
empire and became Emperor Napoleon III. 
He dreamed of conquering Europe, as had his 
uncle, the great Bonaparte. However, he fin- 
ally entered a war, totally unprepared, against 
the King of Prussia. In 1870, after the French 
army had been crushingly defeated, and 
Paris itself was being approached, the Thirl 
Republic was established. 

From this time until the World War then- 
was a continual struggle in France between 
Royalists and Republicans. After the war the 
fear of Bolshevism caused the conservative - 
to unite into a "national bloc," which, led by 
Poincare, won a sweeping victory. Then, the 
political beliefs of Francs turned slowly away 
from conservativism until, in 1924, the left 
bloc under the guidance of former Premier 
Briand and EdottSrd Harriot gained control of 
the country. Two years later, this bloc be- 
came disorganized over the question of na- 
tional finance, and Poincare and the conserva- 
tives returned, In H>2», Poincare was forced 
to leave politics because of his ill health. In 
all probabilities, his resignation meant the 
downfall of the right wing. From then on. 
the government became increasingly liberal, 
until it was transformed into the Popular 
Front of today. 

Thus did Prance emerge from a tyran- 
nical state of royalism, into I republic, and 
now, into practically a atuud-socialisl stati 

Italian Revolution 

Contrary to the bloody manner by which 
France achieved her democratic end, Italy has 
been for the most part at least, until re- 
cently — politically placid. It is true, of course, 
that in 1K4<> ( ia.ihahli's First Italian Legion 
rose against Ferdinand II, King of Naples 
and Sicily. But Italy still has a king, although 
we often lose sight of that fact. It was not 
until immediately after the World War that 
Italy was faced with a vital political catas- 
trophe. Let us observe briefly the causes and 
the effects of this crisis, and discover how 
greatly the Italian and French forms of gov- 
ernment differ. 

In the early part of the twentieth century, 
there lived in northern Italy, a young school- 
teacher named Benito Mussolini. He had an 
exceptional organizing ability, and an intense 
interest in Socialism. These two character 
istics of his often caused a great deal of fric- 

tion between him and the Italian police of- 
ficials. At the beginning of the World War, 
Mussolini Strongly stressed the need for Ital- 
ian neutrality. Suddenly, he changed his views 
and championed the cause of intervention. 
Because of his militaristic attitude, the So- 
cialists immediately forced his resignation 
from the party. He soon formed a small group 
of his own which he called Fascio Di Combat- 
limento (Union of Combat). This was a veiy 
unimportant faction of Italian politics until 
IW1, Immediately after the war. Italy, as did 
most of the other European countries, under- 
went a terrific economic collapse, The Bol- 
shevist Influence swept over the nation and 
settled there. Conservative estimates -how 
that about one-third of Italy was Communistic- 
ally inclined. Mussolini, gathering his slowly- 

expanding organisation, offered another and 

a better way out of chaos. Hit program ws 

extremely democratic. He proposed to bring 
about such unheard of reforms as woman 
sufferage, an B-hoUr day, minimum wage laws, 

and even collective bargaining for workers. 
Put he could not bring forward his plans 
in the face of such concentrated Communist 
opposition. Accordingly, he silled himself with 

D'Annunzio's Nationalists, so that he mighl 

better tamp oui the "red menace," However, 

the Fascist Party grew BO fast after this, 
that its ideals were praclically fmcot ten. 
!•'. P. Benns in his "Europe Since 1!H J" says: 
1 hi. flood oj >ii u recruits fouled //<<■ 
parent itream, Fascism's original proletraian 
tympathitrs, //. hostility in tht bourgeoisie, 
wert lost during th* fight agaimt Bolshe- 

Eventually, by a series of brilliant diplo- 
matic manoeuvres, and by "gently persuading" 
some of the opposition, Mussolini succeeded 

in the complete "Fascist i/.at ion" of the goy 
eminent Immediately thereafter plans were 

made for a thorough suppression of all op 

position. Italians were no longer permitted to 

think, or to speak, or to write as they pleased. 

Muasolin once declared: "There is no longer 

room for many things which were excellent 

in other times . . . Today, among the things 

for which then- is m> room, must be included 

the Opposition." 

Such are the views of the present Italian 
dictatorship. Contrast them with the liberal 
policies of neighboring France. 
And Now Spain 

Situated not far from either Italy or 
Fiance, and vitafiy concerned with the poli- 
cies of both, is the war-stricken country of 
Spain. For the past century or so, this coun- 
try has been politically restless in a spas- 
modic way. Ever since Ferdinand VI I arrang. 
ad for his daughter Isabella to succeed him 

to the throne instead of his brother. Don 
Carlos, who had the more valid claim, the 
( artists have been a nuisance to every Al 
fonsist monarch. Shortly after the halfway 
mark of the nineteenth century, the Spanish 
people, seeing the success .if the Flench ReVO 
lution, rose against their king. After a short 
time, they established a weak republic which 
was soon dissolved, and the Spaniards re 
treated once again into their shell of serf 
dom, illiteracy, and poverty. 

Here they remained until the World War.

Fundamentally, l g<> to the theatre for 
enjoyment, but that ia not the only reason. 
I also go with the intention of finding some 
definite idea either a new one or an "l<i one 
made clear which will alter my views on 
life. When the more serious purpose of my 
theatre-going takes precedence over the more 
frivolous one, I experience a definite, yet in- 
tangible, thrill which makes the picture par- 
ticularly outstanding. 1 had such an experience 
when I Baw "Dead End." This experience re- 
sulted from the effect of two scenes— the 
first, that involving the meeting of the gang- 
ster and the prostitute; the second, thai in- 
volving the meeting of the rich girl with true 
poverty. From these scenes I gathered a clear 

conception of slums and a new understanding 
of social relationships. 

I liked "Dead Knd" liecause it gave me an 
actual picture of destitution. I thought I 
knew poverty, but a trip into a tenement strick- 
en with want revealed its reality to me. I saw 
a dark, dirty hall; I saw a narrow, dangerous 
stairway; I saw slop and swill ami cock- 
roaches; I saw depravity; I saw disease; — I 
saw humanity suffer. This is the definition of 
Blums — this is "Dead Knd." 

"Dead Knd" left another impression with 
me. It left me with a new understanding of 
the elects of environment upon weak indi- 
viduals. I was enjoying the secene in which 
the gangster was asking the girl why she 

turned to prostitution, when I heard a state- 
ment that made me sit up — "What did you ex- 
pect — ?•• What could 1 expect— 7 What could 
anyone expect from a girl raised in filth, 
broken by poverty, and degraded by ignor- 
ance 7 The easiest way out! Can there be 
any other answer for a weak individual 7 

I certainly enjoyed "Dead Knd" 
more so after I saw it than while I was 
seeing it. It etched a picture of poverty in my 
mind and impressed me with the importance 
of environment for the weak individual. The 
picture left a certain number of queries un- 
answered in my mind which make me won- 
der — "Are we at a Dead Knd."

Barbara Stewart's radio condensation of 
Irwin Shaw's play is almost as effective as 
the actual stage production, as was proven 
by the Christian federation last week. The 
radio version, though rather brief, (some of 
the scenes were related through a narrator) 
hammered out the intense drama of the six 
soldiers who refused to be buried. 

Walter Kpstein, "M, did a Rood job of 
narrating, against a striking background of a 

spotlighted curtain; especially at the close, 
where he described the dead walking out into 
the world, while the (ieneral slumps over the

of praise to describe her performance. She 
was especially vivid as Martha Webster, the 

wife of the poor garage mechanic whose life 

has been wasted — her cry of: "Why don't don't 
all of you $lK.f><» a week bastards stand up — 
it's about time!" was the real cry of a 
woman who has seen her life wasted and 
empty, dumped on the ash-heap of humanity. 
"Duty The Dead" does not show the hor- 
rors of war itself. It pictures the Bickening 
results of useless slaughter for worthless prin- 
ciples — the tragedy of those lives which are 
wasted before their lifespan has been en- 
joyed. The farmers who should be out reap- 
ing their wheat, the boys who have not yet

two years. During this period, the Fascist 
influence began t<> permeate Spanish politics. 
At first the Fascist followers were those who 
believed in a very strong Rightist government 
Later, however, they came to understand Fas 
cism as Mussolini preached it. Hut, they were 
still Spaniards, and as long as the govern- 
ment was Right, they would have continued 
to support it. In March, 1986, however, the 
Popular Front was victorious. This immediate- 
ly nave rise to a state of grave unrest, fol- 
lowed by assassinations and riots all over 
Spain, and especially in Madrid. Finally, on 
July 17, 1936, in Spanish Morocco, a number 
of regiments, under the leadership of (Jen. 
Francisco Franco, rose in mutiny against the 
Republic. Civil war in Spain had begun. 

Now that we have traced the growth of 
the French, Italian, and Spanish forms of 
government, I believe that we can have a 
better understanding of their relations at the 
present time. I have chosen to discuss France, 
rather than England or Russia, and Italy, rath- 
er than Germany, because it seems to me that 
the attitude of both these countries toward 
the Spanish war is most representative of 
their respective types of government. 

The Civil War 
Let us first survey the opposing forces 

in this war. The Insurgent troops are ba cke d 
by the Spanish Right Wing — the army of- 
ficers, large land-owners, and clergy, together 
with the Fascists and monarchists. On the 
Left, tin- Loyalists are composed of liberal 
Republicans (including the Basque National- 
ists who are devoutedly Catholic) and the 
working people, the Socialists, Anarcho-Syn- 
dicaliats, and Communists. Despite the glar- 
ing headlines of the Hearst newspapers, it 
is common knowledge that the Spanish Civil 
War was not precipitated by the Communists, 
but by the generals of a military bureaucratic 
machine who sensed a gradual loss of their 
control over the army. At the outbreak of the 
war, then were in Spain 60,000 "reds" in a 
nation whose population totalled about 
29,000,000. However, if opposition to a feudal 
icgime in which one man in every 3,000 owned 
any land whatsoever, in which the army con- 
trolled the entire government, and in which 
45 per cent of all the people were purposely 
kept illiterate, represents Communism, then 
Hearst is correct. 

Now let us determine what all this inter- 
nal chaos has to do with the rest of Kurope. 
If the Spanish Popular Front should be vic- 
torious, it might possibly mean the first ap- 
pearance of a Soviet regime in western 
Europe. OH the other hand, a Kascist con- 
quest of Spain would surely weaken the liber- 
al government of Fiance. Therefore, both 

France and Italy, as well as Germany, Eng- 
land, and Russia, are vitally concerned with 
the war, each in a, distinctly different manner. 
France, immediately after the outbreak 
of the war, formed a non-intervention com- 
mittee, ami refrained from exporting either 
munitions or supplies to Spain. I believe that 
it was this attitude of France which prevented 
a rapid government supression of the Insur- 
gents, and resulted in a long and brutal war. 
Italy, however, with her tongue in her cheek. 

Mtemed to agree with the non-intervention 
committee — at least, until she openly with- 
drew last June — and, at the same time, com- 
pelled a number of HIack Shirt Legions to 
volunteer their services to the Spanish rebels. 
When the Committee set up international land 
and sea patrols, the Italian expeditionary 
troops were mysteriously protected by un- 
known submarines ami bombing-planes. At 
any rate, regardless of the outcome of the 
war — although Fascist presses maintain that 
there must .,e but one outcome- — Mussolini 
knows that the presence of so many Italian 
troops in Spain will give him a greater bar- 
gaining power with the other European na- 
tions, from which he expects certain valuable 
concessions. It has even been rumored that 
if the Italian volunteers should be recalled, 
Britain and France would recognize Ethiopia 
Sfl Italian, and perhaps grant belligerent 
rights to the Insurgents. At the present time, 
Mussolini has yielded somewhat to the pres- 
sure of France, and Russia, (Russia, incident- 
ally, has refused to grant belligerent rights 
until all the Italian troops are withdrawn) 
and has promised, by her proposal of "sym- 
bolic withdrawal," to recall a Fascist soldier 
for every foreign defender that the Loyalist 
relinquish. This is really very generous of 
II Dues, when he has roughly six times as 
many men in Spain as the Loyalists have 
foreign volunteers! 

The Present Situation 

Mussolini, however, knows better than 
to withdraw all of his legions, for whereas 
the Loyalists are able to carry on their cam- 
paign alone, (ieneral Franco would lose the 
backbone of his army if the kalians were 
withdrawn. Also, since Mussolini has put so 
much into this war, he cannot now retreat. 
The Insurgent forces have occupied the ter- 
ritory around Teruel for almost a year. Fran- 
co needs more men to drive his paralyzing 
wedge from here to Valencia. When he has 
done this, he will have succeeded in split- 
ing the Loyalist territory, and probably in 
terminating the war. If this should happen, 
Fascism would have a firm root with which 
to undermine European democracies. Already 
France has felt the influence of Fascism in 
her Moroccan possessions. Mussolini now 
holds the Balearic Islands from which he can 
control the French route from Marseilles to 
Algiers; from these islands he can cut short 
the entire British trade line in the Mediter- 

This growth of Italian power cannot go 
on forever. It seems to me that Kuropean 
war is inevitable. I should like to qualify this 
statement. If the Spanish Loyalists should 
subdue the revolt and do it quickly, I be- 
lieve that an immediate war would be avoided. 
I say "an immediate war" because I main- 
tain that there must eventually be a struggle 
between Fascist and liberally democratic gov- 
ernments. If, on the other hand, the Spanish 
Insurgents should be victorious, 1 can see 
but one way to avoid war, and that Is to 
grant concession after concession, and colony 
after colony to the Fascist nations. Will Eng- 
land and France relinquish their colonies to 
Germany'.' Will Soviet Russia grant any polit- 
ical concessions whatsoever to Italy'.' I doubt 
it! Therefore. I believe that 1 am justified in 
saying that there must be a war. 

Now the questions arise: How will the 
United States be affected? Will we become 
sovereign states'.' Will we retain our democ- 
racy? (Juien sake? The European nations

Were we to turn back the pages of 
far back into the vague age of the p 
man, and were to read with unn 
imagination the paragraph concerning 
and letters of Mr. Akahdaybab, proba 
first of the primitive men to leave rec

his depiction of his eighteen-year-. .

his speech is composed of ebullient 
and strange phrases. Most noticeable an 
actions. They are void of reason — total 
sane. Nitebab is no longer a gentleman, i 
must speak with him . . ." Whether the • 
wildered father spoke to his son, unfortu- 
nately, because of the loss of the subsequent 
letters, we do not know. This we have rea 
soned however: Nitebab is unquestionably the 
great, great, great grandfather of tin- college 
boy of today. And judging from the charac- 
ter of the modern college student Mr. Akah- 
daybab's talk, if he had one with his goo, 
was to no avail; for Nitebab's attribute- have 
been inherited by his grandchildren. 

Nitebab would do well to smile down 
upon his posterity, his grandchildren, for they 
have done much with the rich inheritance 
that is theirs. They have never failed to up- 
hold the torch of college-life, a never-dying 
torch engendered by a fervent, youthful spirit; 
nor have they failed to maintain the inher- 
ent attributes of their ancestor. So Buccess 
ful have they been in their development that 
they have resolved themselves into a type, a 
fixed type, a type marked and recognized 
by its lack of manners, slovenly dies,, is&ne 
actions, and careless speech. 

We must admit however, that college stu- 
dents are not the sole offenders. Others be 
sides college students have no manners, dress 
slovenly, and are careless with their speech, 
Yet, there is something inexplicable that du 
tinguishes between the college student and 
the ordinary ungentlemanly person— gome- 
thing that we wish to find repulsive but in- 
stead find singularly attractive, something 
that seems to explain his inane actions, bit 
manners, his dress, and his speech, something 
that fascinates us. I'erhaps if we were ! 
alyze the mysterious college boy, we m i gh t 
arrive at a conclusion as to what the some- 
thing is. what motivates his action.-, what 
makes him "tick." However, let us n<>t gain 
false hope; the college student cannot '■<" 
analyzed. He is too complex. The best thai 
we can do is to describe his actions, dress, 
speech, and manners hoping that somewhere 
in our description we might touch upon 
thing tangible that will lead us nearer 
solution . . .

Kdna St. Vincent is not content to

such varied subjects as love, war, sport, 
ins and philosophy, but only incidental- 
politics is the main concern, and Com- 
sm the prevailing theme. So, you see,

, ned trirlishness and is "gone with the wind" 
ah the mountain, eventually to blow into a 
S'ew York apartment with seven men. She who 
stood «>n her lone hill and cried, "O 
rid. I cannot hold thee close enough!" has

ci and relate that the world is "just a

titute Miss Millay's present definition of 
•world" for the word itself in "0 world, 1 
• hold thee close enough!", and then you 
rill begin to see what has happened to the 
exquisite Kdna. 

Conversation at Midnight" Is meant to be 

.i deftly-sliced piece of sophisticated Intellec- 

tasl New York life. I don't believe the author 

- v.ry successful in her intention either to 

tc-llectual or to portray New York life. 

■ does succeed in being deft and sophisti- 

■ i in her expression, but that, to me, 

• insufficient excuse for publishing a book. 

Throughout their conversation, the char- 
ter*, as distinct personalities, remain in the 
ftdows. During my reading of the book, I 
-antly had to refer to the character list 

• i der to determine the possible background 
the man speaking, to discover, for instance, 

i Merton was the rich stockbroker or 

Communist. Her characters seem to be 

: rtk puppets, or, as the underworld would 

it, "stooges," who are entirely at the 

of their despotic mistress' whim. Hum- 

Wolfe has emphasised this lifelessnesa 

of Miss Millay's New Yorkers. In the "Lon- 
don Observer," he has remarked that "The 
first point which strikes the reader Is that 
these persons are di tie rent iated by their opin- 
ions and not by their characters." I cannot, 
to be sure, quite agree with Mr. Wolfe, for 
I found that, in my first reading at least, it 
was difficult to distinguish some of the men 
'•ven by their opinions. In addition, the one 
factor which all these men have in common 
at the time of their discussion is the New 
York in which they are living. Hut. curiously, 
only one of them is provincial enough to men- 
tion any part of the city. And that reference 
concerns the men who take their wives' dogs 
for an airing on Dark Avenue by moonlight! 
Futhermore, the characters make little or no 
reference to their respective occupations, a 
fact which helps to account for their lack 
of vigor and life. 

The question as to whether or not this 
book should be regarded as intellectual is not 
for me to decide. My personal advice to any- 
one looking for positive intellectual stimula- 
tion would be to avoid this book. Miss Millay 
gets nowhere with her discussion. In the 
end I am left with nothing but the slightly 
disturbing, and very, very vague thought that 
Communism has certain poetic possibilities. 
I feel that the author has been inquisitively 
and hopefully sticking her fingers into for- 
bidden jam, only to withdraw them quickly, to 
lick them inexpertly, before she is caught. 
Why, for instance, is the priest, Father An- 
selmo, who more than anyone should be able 
to keep balance in the conversation by his de- 
tachment from the mechanics of life, — why 
is he withdrawn from the discussion after he 
has shared only in the first third of the book'.' 
Is his early departure forced by lack of perti- 
nent argument in the author. Or was he dis- 
continued so that the rest of them might 
"let down their hair'".' Finally, I see no 
growth of development in "Conversation At 
Midnight," unless it is the growing domin- 
ance of Communism over the discussion. Can 
there be much intellectual activity and ex- 
citement in a book which shows no growth 
or development. It becomes increasingly a 
thing of wonder to me that Kdna St. Vincent 
Millay could see fit to publish such an in- 
consequential, even though spritely, conver- 

So far, perhaps, 1 have been more vehe- 
ment than scrupulous in my indictment of 
Kdna St. Vincent Millay's youngest literary 
offspring. Fortunately there is much in the 
book that I can enjoy. The deftness of phrase 
ami clever Word-play are admirable. The mer- 
curial quality of Miss Millay's wit is insidi- 
ously attractive. Ricardo, the hot and gentle- 
man of leisure, says: 

'Sou i mi tn. jealousy, rrmelty, anger, feat 
l.ip at the dour a I the mind And art admitted 

.it 'iin i , 

But Reason knocks in pain .it occupied 
eat : 

It /•./. as appointment, and tit mind /■ in 
co nfere n c e." 

What a sharply drawn metaphor] And who 

can resist l'ygmalion, tin- short story writer 
who knows "which side his gin is bittered 
on," when in inebriative expansiveness be ex 
claims to the communist-poet : 
. . . "your head's 
So full of dope, so full of happy-dust, 
so full of snull'ed-up Proletariat happy- 

Miss Millay's expression often tends toward 
the prosaic and vulgar, as in I'ymalion's out- 

'Tot world 1 i ie full of \ons-o\-bitehes it makes 

'" i /"/ downright conspicuous: fons-oU 

. bt i hat ing ton i

Sons-of-kitches .it Tropical Putting ^<.n^^ up 

i'n i u , noses 
And wns-of-kilchei .it, backing their 
initials m tht royal palms." 
To me that passage is a plague-ridden poetic 
apostasy. Not being of the "smart set," I 
doubt the beauty of rottenness in rhyme. 

In contrast there is the Communist's ulti- 
matum delivered against capitalism, and this 
passage is, as well, sophisticated in tone, but 
the expression is poetic rather than merely 

"old nun >,//< are dying '

1 feel that, despite the many Interesting 

passages which it contains, "Conversation At 
Midnight," as a whole, is not poetry of great 
worth. The author is of nimble speech, and 
expresses her sharp, concrete images by means 
of a prolific use of unusual adjectives. Such 
phrases as: "tax-exempted damn," "hennaed 
horsehair," "shoddy years," "unicellular 
minds," and "aniorphousamber of vulgarity" 
Sparkle through the pages. Hut 1 became over- 
saturated with the author's precise and start- 
ling Vocabulary of adjectives. She bullies 
the reader with her quick profusion of un- 
expected adjectives. She lacks depth and flex 
ibility, and, like the futile Water-beetle, darts 
swiftly from one bubble to the next to bold 
the spectators' attention. \U>r character crea- 
tions are "hollow men," and, to use her own 
words, might well be "folded ami stiff on the 
snow." Her sophistication and cleverness may 
be worth more Battering attention than I 
have paid them, but be that as it may, in 
my opinion St. Kdna needs to abjure the 
society of puppets and Bourbon if she intends 
to write poetry.

The average layman who discusses war 
has much to learn from Harold Shaprio's 
latest book, "What Every Young Man Should 
Know About War." Impassioned exaggeration 

and emotional stimulation have no place in 

this novel treatment of the war question. On 

the contrary the facts about war are presented 
in a cold, objective manner with no attempt 
made to pervert them. 

A terse rapid-reading method ,,f ques- 
tion and answer is used throughout the book. 
Harold Shapiro aaka the questions, ami au- 
thentic documents and recognised officials sup- 
ply the answers with which every American 
college student, (especially those enrolled in 
the h. o. t. c.) should be acquainted. 

What is the professional army man's at 
titude toward the next war 7 Would I feel 
any special sensation on being wounded 7 
What may be my fate after being wounded 7 
If 1 die in a war hospital, how will I be pre- 
pared for the undertaker 7 What was the 
attitude of the Army on sex problems in the 
last war'.' The answers to these and many 

other questions made vivid leading in Sha- 
piro's book. The answers are excerpts from 
statements made in war time, and especially 
at the front, by the medical corps of the 
various belligerents in the World War, ami 
provide enjoyable as well as instructive read- 
ing in your leisure. II Kat i !l. ' s

he is not a Catholic, though he can interpret 

Catholic dogmas with the precision of a Jesuit 

and tin- finality of a Thomas Aquinas; he i> 
not a mystic, though he has lived the con- 
fined life of a medieval ascetic. 

Understanding his complete lack of .-tan 

dards, we may be better able to evaluate him 
in his characteristic role as critic. There is 
hardly a great figure in literature or phil- 
osophy whom Santayana has not impugned 
at one time or another: Emerson forgot the 
difference between right and wrong; Shakes- 
peare had no religion; Plato was a mystic; 
Kant was an egotist. Thus Santayana goes 
through the list of the world's great and 
finds something wrong with each one. His 
criticism, furthermore, has no unity. In one 
essay he will condemn the Reformation with 
the holy zeal of an ecumenical council in the 
act of damning heretics; in another he will 
criticize the Middle Ages as if he were a 
Protestant The truth of the matter is that 
he has no critical principles upon which to 
base a valid judgment. Since Santayana be- 
lieves in nothing, he is bound to find fault 
with any man who ever believed in anything. 
And to believe in something — God perhaps, 
or man. or matter, or spirit— but at least 
something, is one of man's most universal 
tendencies, an instinct one might almost call 
it. Santayana has forgotten that it is simply 
not the nature of the human being to believe 
in nothing. 

In this philosophy of nothing, which un- 
derlies all of Santayana's criticism, there is 
an (dement of intellectual cowardice. Having 
made the commonplace discovery that any 
philosophy, no matter what it is, can be 
demolished by a critic who has patience and 
an incisive mind, Santayana devoted most of 
his life to assaulting and demolishing the 
great structures of thought which the human 
mind had been building up through the cen-

SANTAYANA — t »ntimnd from Page 3 

Santayana's work, like his life, gives out- 
tin' impression of futility. He once said that 
only one type of life was congenial to him — 
that of the medieval traveling scholar. And, 
for sixty years he lived that life, travelling 
about from Harvard to Berlin, from Berlin 
to Cambridge, then to the Sorboiine and Ox- 
ford. At each institution he tasted one more 
philosophical dish: after American pragmatism 
came German science. French logic, and Ox- 
onian 1'latonism. Now. the life devoted to 
study is a high type of life— if it has a pur- 
pose and a meaning: but, in so far as 1 can 
discover, Santayana's life of devout study is 

almost without any purpose. He is not search- 
ing for the truth, for loitg ago he decided 
that there is no truth. He is seeking what 
Walter Pater called patterns of menal stimuli. 
He represents intellectual Epicureanism in its 

decadent stages. 1 have no sympathy for un- 
critical humanitarianism; 1 do not helieve that 

a man must do something to improve the 
human race in order to be considered great. 
Yet, I do believe that a man who inherits a 
little money and then retires to an ivory tower 
and all the remaining days of his life casts 
aspersions on the rest of the world has led 
a useless life. 

1 believe, however, that Santayana's prose 
works will endure if any prose writings of 
the past thirty years are destined to last. But 
Santayana will have no place in the history 
of thought beside Plate and Aristotle; perhaps 
future generations will deny ot him alto- 
gether the name of philosopher since he is 
neither a system builder, nor a seeker of the 
truth. In the world of literature Santayana 
will ftnd his niche. When he dies and goes 
to the Isle of the Blest, he will not be allowed 
to converse with Plato and Aristotle; but he 
will tind a permanent abode with Shelley and 
others who, although they contributed nothing 
to the world of thought, were the creators of 
an eternal beauty.

"God, this place in a morgue tonight'." 
-aid Kitty under her breath. 

She sat wearily watching the signal light 
flash on ami oil' over the door of one of the 
looms. Let it flash! 

It was only LIS summoning her weary 
"angel of mercy" to ask in her saccharine 
voice, "Nurse, dear, are you quite sure I shall 
go home first thing in the morning? I CUB 
hardly wait to take care of the little darling 

The occupant of room 113, you see, was 
young Mrs. Kirby. She was the kind of woman 
who would call a nurse an M angel <>f mercy." 
and "dear" and "darling" everybody. Kitty 
wondered unfeelingly why she still called her 
"dear," for none of her effusive remarks had 
ever elicited any more satisfactory answer 
from Kitty than a bored "Sure!", or, "Don't 
call call me 'dear,' will you?" 

Two years of hospital training had not 
tended to soften Kitty's inherently cynical 
attitude toward life. The girls thought she 
was "tough." She realized that, but somehow 
their opinion did not move her at all, except 
upon occasion. 

"What do I care?" she fiercely asked her- 
self, whenever she began to feel a softening 
of her cynical guard. 

She reasoned that they didn't mean to be 
cruel, but that they just didn't know it was 
to have been brought up on the wrong side 
of the tracks. They didn't know what it was 
to have to fight the Kelly kids to keep them 
from making her small brother's life miser- 
able. And Kitty would certainly never en- 
lighten them. 

Kitty was pretty, in a hard, metallic way. 
She had extremely blond hair, the type that 
usually comes from a bottle of peroxide. 
People would persist in beleiving that was 
just where she had acquired it — let them! 
It was natural, and it was beautiful. But 
how many times she had wished that it could 
be a mousy brown — before she had stopped 
caring, of course! Knowing no other way to 
deal with sorrow, Kitty had denied its exist- 
ence for her. She had tried to ignore it en- 
tirely. Her features, at last, instead of being 
softened and deepened by her sorrow, were 
set in a cold, impassive mold. Never did 
they betray her feelings. She made certain 
of that! 

Kitty had not had much affection or many 
softening influences in her life. Her father was 
a perennial drunkard. Her mother, she had 
never known. Her small brother. Hud. had 
been the one person in her small, unfriendly 
world whom she had ever loved. With him 
her world began and ended. At any time she 
would gladly have died for him. Kven now, 
after four years, if one should take the trouble 
to look at Kitty as some mangled body was 
carried through the emergency entrance, he 
Would be surprised to see the quick, uncon- 
trolahle pain that came into her cold, green 
.yes. For she was never to forget that end- 
less, terrible night when she had knelt by 
Hud's poor, little, broken body, and prayed 
to all the Gods she had ever known that 
be spared to her barren life. Nor was she 
.ver to forget the pitifully small funeral, 
or that one modest wreath of (lowers bearing 
the eloquent tribute, "the Cang." 

Helplessly. Kity had then seized at the 
hospital and nurses' training as a means of 
occupying her mind. They said that hard work 
made people forget. They were right, to a 
certain extent — the raw. gaping wound had 
dosed; only the dull pain throbbed on, slow- 
ly, unceasingly, underneath her hard exterior. 
So she had come to the hospital, and had 
forthwith been considered "tough"! She had 
not wept from homesickness in that first 
upsetting month. The girls couldn't under- 
land that' she had not been racked with 
ifter -he -aw her first patient die. 

had all been heart-broken! Yet, how, indeed, 
were they to know that Kitty's old sorrows 
had numbed her into a kind of dumb ac- 
ceptance. She would be hard, yes, as far as 
they were concerned. 

The light flashed once again, more insis- 
tently this time, and Kitty was forced to 
make her weary way down the hall once 
more to "dear" Mrs. Kirby. 

"Oh Lord!— this job is getting me!" she 
muttered under her breath, thinking only of 
her aching feet. 

Coming back, she stopped before room 
1<»7. She would steal a moment to look in on 
her special charge. She tiptoed in, and stood 
looking tenderly at a small, alarmingly still 
boy of about eight years. He was so white 
and so patient in his desire to live, but 
doctors shook their heads, and repeated sad- 
ly, "No hope." 

"He's so like my Bud," whispered Kitty. 
"Please God, don't let him die." 

Could one have looked at her then, he 
would have seen her green eyes fill with 
tears; but then, of course, she would never 
have allowed herself the luxury of this dis- 
play of feeling, had there been anyone to 
see. Through eyes dimmed by tears, Kitty 
looked more closely at the strangely still 
figure. Slowly the realization came to her 
that her prayers were in vain. Little Jimmie 
was already dead! Her heart was like lead. 
Once more God had seen fit to ignore her 

Slowly she walked back to the desk. Me- 
chanically she looked at the signal light over 
the door of room 113. The eternal solitary 
light looked as lonesome as Kitty had been 
for four years. 

She telephoned the house doctor. "Doctor 
Stern?" She spoke quite impassively. "Jimmie 
died tonight." Just that. 

"I won't cry," she said heartbrokenly. 
"I'm tough!" 

COLLEGE BOY — Continued /row Pjgt 2 
it falls, a hat remains untipped, table man- 
ners are forgotten and "ladies before gentle- 
men" is interpreted as "ladies before gentle- 
men, if they are fast enough." We do admit, 
however, that with the advent of domineering 
woman — an innovation brought about when 
the supposed weaker sex discovered that by 
appearing sweet and submissive they could 
no longer fool the men — the nonchalance and 
self assurance with which the college boy has 
combated the drive of the scheming,, wiley 
co-ed must be admired. The ease and poise 
in which he treads upon the "scheming fe- 
male's" dropped handkerchief or carelessly, but 
with a noticeable finesse, pushes a girl off the 
sidewalk is .though slightly barbarous, worthy 
of praise. However, let the laudations be un- 
heard. Such manners are contrary to those 
established and maintained by gentlemen. Yet 
are we not wondering now whether the gentle- 
men are wrong and the college students right? 

Referring to Mr. Akahdaybab's letter we 
recall that he mentioned that Nitebab's speech 
was "composed of ebullient epithets and 
strange phrases." In a previous letter the 
disgrunted father had written, "ibe ebrbubh 
Nitobah dduf yo nr yhr vsrhyjfmmn joe yhr

"one evening Nitebab said to me, "Hi, pop ole

MAGGIE — Continued from Page 3 
take of the meal she had prepared. All went 
well until dessert and coffee came along. Now, 
although as a rule I am not very fussy about 
what I eat, there is one thing that turns me 
into an eccentric grouch, and that thing is 
coffee. If it is good, I am as happy as you 
would be if you were chosen captain of your 
club; if it is not good, I am as angry as a 
bear and a touchy as a match head. 

This coffee was not good. In fact it 
was stinko. I set the cup down with a clash 
after the first swallow and told Maggie just 
what I thought of it. Maggie was up in arms. 
What was the matter with the coffee? Hadn't 
she learned how to make it just the way her 
mother did? Didn't her father compliment her 
every time she made it for him? Who was 
I to judge the quality of coffee, working in 
that rotten cafe where they never served 
a decent cup of coffee in their lives? I told 
her I didn't care who taught her how to make 
coffee; she'd never learned. It was foul. It 
was putrid. I even told her that her father 
either didn't have any sense of taste or else 
he didn't want to break his poor daughter's 
heart. We were both yelling at the top of 
our voices across the table top, when sud- 
denly something clicked inside me, and I 
realized what was happening: A cup of coffee 
was spoiling my chance to marry the girl 
of my heart. I shut up like a clam, unable 
to say anything. So did Maggie. Then we 
both started to apologize, but we made a poor 
job of it; and the result of our clash was 
that we both turned to our work, ashamed, 
sore, and scared. 

I don't know how Maggie managed to do 
the dishes, to knit, and to get supper. I 
couldn't do anything. The columns of figures 
I was trying to add looked like Chinese script, 
blurred Chinese faces with Chinese mouths 
telling me in the king's own English what a 
fool I'd been, what a mess I'd made of this 

"I'll drink every last drop of coffee to- 

night if it kills me," I muttered. I knew that 
Maggie would serve it, and that it would n 
be changed a bit. 

Maggie called me to supper. We both si- 
down and began to eat, and a jittery meal rt 
was too. Neither of us dared to speak for feu 
of starting an argument. We did speak of the 
weather — it was a hot, heavy day in sun- 
nier — ; but for the most part the room ffu 
as quiet as a haunted house and just as full 
of danger. Dinner was through; now for 
dessert and coffee. Maggie brought in two cap 
from the kitchen. The aroma came to my 
nose, wafted in the steam. Ah! rlere was good 
coffee. I was wrong. She hadn't been stub- 
born. She was trying to satisfy me. Hut wait! 
. . . What was that small black lump float- 
ing on the steaming, brown liquid? A fly! 
A big blue fly must have fallen into my 
cup and scalded to death. Now he floated 
bottom side up. I didn't dare to look, but 1 
could feel Maggie staring at me as I ate 
my pie. 

"I mustn't make a row now;" I thought. 
"I'll drink it fly and all. And while Mam' 
watched I prepared that potent beverage. I 
buried the fly in a landslide of sugar. I 
drowned him in a deluge of cream. And I 
drank with three great gulps. Bottom 
The fly had gone. 

Somehow that evening when we sen 
sitting on the little back porch watching the J 
flickering lights of the town, we decided 
forget the rest of the test, and when I came j 
back the next morning at nine, I had a mar- 
riage license with me. 

Now, my son, is your curiosity sstkned 

"Yes," answered John, "it is. Now I kmm

State and a strong Dartmouth team, 
the Statesmen met their first setback 
at New Haven, when Captain Carter 
of Yale scored a last-minute goal in 
the final period of play, on a fluke 
shot on the wet and sloppy field. 

In another muddy contest the fol-

Bud Iiodda, high-scoring center for-

to be the individual star of the day.

into two overtime periods. The Jeffs 
scored twice in the second overtime

its efforts to secure an appropriation 
for the new building, sponsored a 
program at which the problem of 
housing the women students was re- 
viewed. Mi . .1. 8, Leach of Walpole, 
chairman of the Council, prosified. 

At the meeting, Dr. Hugh P. 
Maker told of the growing need for 
a center for women's activities on 
campus, and cited the fact that In 
1938 the State Federation of Wo- 
men's Clubs went on record in favor 
of construction of a new building. 

The Council'- proposed solution to 
the problem of housing women was 
presented by Mrs. Lead), and Miss

women, told of how the propo ed 
building would solve the problem.

Once again news comes from the State House about the 
"University of Massacchusetts." Last Monday Representative 
Charles Miller of Boston tiled a resolve providing for an investi- 
gation relative to the advisability of the establishment and main- 
tenance by Massachusetts of a State University in the city of 
Boston. Thus there has come to the tore a movement not only de- 
signed to create a state university, but designed to establish that 
university in Boston. 

It seems inevitable, with all the forces working toward that 
goal, that in the near future a state university will be founded. 
There has been much talk on this subject in the past. Approxi- 
mately a year ago, the then existing University of Massachusetts, Hairywulf: (Pained) For that one, 
a private" institution, was reorganized and relinquished its name, you die! (and we agree with him) 
At the Lime it was provided by the Legislature that the name (He swinga 
should never be granted to any other private institution, but bad <"' 
should be reserved for a state supported university. Last sum- «P llls 
mer Commissioner of Education Reardon appointed a committee 
of educators to investigate the possibility of combining all state 
supported educational institutions into a university. And this 
week we have the resolve mentioned above . . . aimed at centering 
a state university in Boston, instead of in Amherst where it 
rightfully belongs. 

Since this college was founded, not quite seventy live years 
ago it has looked forward to the time when it would reach adult- 
hood in the family of colleges, and might expand into a university. 
It has now reached that stage in its development. In the time 
that has elapsed since 1868, Massachusetts State College has 
grown. Its physical equipment has been tremendously Increased. 
The College has developed academically out of its limiting field 
of agriculture, and at present oilers courses not only in agricul- 
ture, but in the sciences and humanities as well. In 1931 this 
situation was finally recognized by the change of name from 
Agricultural to State College. In recent years the college has 
become increasingly popular among students of the Common- 
Wealth, and the college has increased its service to the people of 
the state. The College has thus reached the period in its develop- 
ment when it may justly be reorganized into a university.

To The Editor of The Collegian 

Dear Sir: 

As a result of the recent convoca- 
tion dedicated to the revival of honor 
BO evidently needed at Mass. State, 
we, two "conscientious objectors" 
dare to lift our voices in protest — in 
the face of what seems to be an auto- 
cracy of school "big-wigs." 

We are aware that by thus giving 
our views of the honor system pub- 
licly we will be roundly criticized. 
We are aware that many of those 
who agree with us in spirit will not 
actively back us up; they would be 
wise in remaining silent, for events 
would seem to indicate that "life, 
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" 
are jeopardised here at "State." At 
least the Dean would "aid" anyone 
who decides to objject to the Honor 
System, by locating another campus 
for them! Such a statement sounds 
strangely like a delense mechanism; ! ment. 

for if everyone who believed that the The committee in charge is to be 
Honor System was faulty were to I congratulated on the line way in winch 
leave the campus, the Dean would they executed the affair. 


This year's Freshman Reception, 
held in the Memorial Building Last 
Friday night, was an outstanding 
success. Eugene Provensani ushered 
the 200 persons present through the 
receiving line which included: l'n 
dent and Mrs. linker, Director si 
Mrs. Yerbeck, atr. and Mrs. Barrett 
Mr, and Mrs. DuBois, and Mr. sad 
Mrs. Tramposch.

find himself confronted with a veri- 
table Ghost College whose buildings 
would be haunted by those lost souls 
who had been denied their natural 
prerogatives. We are aware that our 
sentiments concerning this vital issue 
tire backed up by a sizeable minority 
whose exact numbers we cannot quote, 
no vote has ever been taken since 
the College was "Agricultural in 
form and spirit." Now that the school 
has only the aroma of Agriculture 
left, and now .oat the "new element" 
and "sophistication" with which we 
Students have been branded is here, 
we have had BO chance to approve, 
change, or reject the Honor System. 
It has been literally crammed down 
our throats even before we entered 
as Freshmen. 

Five Minutes — Five Reasons 
In live minutes time it was eas\ 
for us to find five reasons why the 
Honor System is not and never will 
be accepted unanimously at Mass. 

In the first place the Faculty of Ottf 
college does not unanimously approve 
of the Honor System. They, of course, 
are forced to comply with the rules 

even as we do; to object would cost 

them their positions. As the situation 
now stands neither the instructor nor 
the Student dares to voice his opinion 

In the second place, anyone whose

Trees Planted In Accord With 
Proposed Development Scheme 

CtJtt) NtjTtS 

Many Tries Moved To West 
Side of Campus 


There ha.~ been some discussion and 
criticism with regard to the two trees 
recently were planted near 1 1 1 « ■ walk 
on the lawn of the Goodell Library. 
While they may appear out o£ place 
at present, they arc pari of a scheme 
for proposed development in front 
,,f the Old Chapel. In the future mow 
trees will lie planted, as soon as the 
plans an- completed. Under this 
scheme, presented by Dr. Baker, a 

certain number of trees will he plant- 
ed each year. The Grounds Depart- 
ment has already set 33 trees this 
fall, including oaks, maples, and elms. 
They have been distributed entirely 
on the west side of the campus. 

It has been found necessary to cut 
d..wn several valuable old trees in 
thi' vicinity of the Physical Education 
Building. These trees died because of 
ears running over their roots, thus 
depriving them of both air and mois- 
ture. The Calcium-chloride put on the 
load before it was tarred also had 
its effect. 

The Campus [Manning Committee 
recently suggested two new parking 
spaces for the use of the memhers of 
the i-ll Club. One site suggested was 
the old cellar-hole to the north of 
North College. The other site was the 
vacant lot west of South College 
parking space. The Supt. of Grounds 

and others are opposed to using the 
old cellar-hole, due to the fact that 
it would reduce the play area of the 
Cluh houses and would al.-o make un- 
sightly what is now a beautiful spot. 
It has been suggested by the Supt. 
of Grounds that this cellar-hole he 
tilled and regraded, and Riven over 
entirely to the 4-H Cluh for recrea- 
tion. The play-ground and remaining 
area which i.- covered with small trees 
would he developed into a small shady 
picnic ground. Stone arches and tables 
would he placed in the grove. The 
traffic around North College, which 
i- even now a problem, would be in- 
creased if the new parking space were 

placed where tile old cellar hole is.

on the front campUS has heen being

since lS'.to, and ha- heen roUgh and

few years. Oats and grass seed will 
be sowed next spring. The oats will 
i„. ,m before commencement leaving 
the field at least partially green. It 
is necessary that this tield he plowed 
because the college needs more hay. 
According to some latN or order no

Excellent Service 

"It is a great event when an indi- 
vidual, a BOCiety ( or a nation substi- 
tutes the idea of "live and let live" 
for the moie natural instincts of kill- 
ing and persecuting," asserted Dr. 
Maxwell I. Goldberg in his address 
•Humility and Tolerance" at the Ve 
pers Service on Sunday, November 2!. 

Dr. Goldberg ponded out as land- 
marks of tolerance the biblical pas- 
sage in which the prophet Micah ap- 
p, ;,!.- t,. "man" instead of to Israel 
alone, and another passage from the 
Religio Medici in which Sir Thomas 
Browne expresses his own great tol- 
erance for all peoples anil races. 

A tolerance devoid of an underly- 
ing {spiritual motive, he felt, was In- 
adequate, for: "Tolerance, in order to 
he given full fruition, must arise 
from humility. Unless it has this 
base, it may he employed in its I 
: .i ••use of pride and of indifference."

'Cellist, Pianist 

Present Concerts 

Richard Lorleberg, violoncellist, and 

his sister Crete von Bayer, pianist, 
will appear at the College in a series 
of informal concerts and discussions 
on Monday and Tuesday, December 
13 and 14, according to an announce- 
ment from the music committee. They 
will close their visit with a formal 
concert Tuesday evening. 

Richard I.orloherg was horn in 
Hanover, Germany, and studied under 
his father, celebrated 'cellist of the 
Royal Theater there. Later he was a 
student in the Leipzig Conservatory 
under Prof. Julius Klengel, one of 
Germany's most famous 'cellists, and 
played for several years in the 
Cewandhaus Orchestra under Prof. 
Arthur Xikisch. He then became a 
member of the music faculty of the 
University of Virginia. Today he lives 
in Washington, D. C, teaching, ap- 
pearing on radio programs and con- 
ceit tours.

pleasing to the reader's eye. 
After reading through the i 
is evident that the editorial b 
the Collegiate Review had 
good job, but were far far fi 
fection. The contents are divided 
three parts: Literary, News, and i 
tures. Photographs from variou 
leges are grouped at the end ■ •

been inserted between the I 
and news sections, they would 
formed a more pleasant and 
interlude for the reader. 

Table of Contents Scored 
Most noticeable was the far- 
author's names and colleges were men- 
tioned only in the table of content! 
Thus, it is necessary to continuously 
ruffle the pages back and forth • 
order to determine who wrote wha; 
The editors may have planned I 
have Collegiate Review readers mem- 
orize the table of contents, but the 
names and colleges of author

Basketball Has Most Candidates 

Followed By Track, Hockey 

And Swimming 


Sidney Kauffman Will Teach a 

Course For Basketball 



M. S. C. 


































Due to repeated requests from 

small towns in the vicinity of the 
college for competent officials to handle 
basketball games, Sidney \v. KaurT 
man of the Physical Education de 
partmenl will give a course in ban 
ketbail officiating this winter. 

The course will carry no credit-, 
since it will be given solely for the 
benent of those attending. My means 
d lectures and practical experienci 
n intramural games, Kauffman will 
prepare the group for the National 
Basketball Officials' examination. 

This examination, which will he giv- 
'ii here at the college by the exam 

Ining board, is Doth written and prac- 
tical, and since most candidates slip 
up on the written examination, Kauff 
man will supplement a study of old 
examinations with a study of the 
rules ami possible situations that 
arise during play. 

The class will meet twice a week, 

at the group's convenience, ami will 
not take the examination until every 
one is thoroughly ready. Student- in 
terested in being certified as Ns 
tional Basketball officials should see 
Kauffman this week. 

Following a brief lull at Thanks- 
giving recess, freshmen winter ath- 
letics will be well under way next 
week, with 175-odd yearling men tak- 
ing part in basketball, winter track, 
hockey, boxing, wrestling, winter- 
sports, and swimming.

ears are not blocked by the wax of 
prejudice cannot but admit that the 
Honor System is the butt of much 
critical humor. This fact in itself 
is a condemnation; since it shows dis- 
crepency of opinion, cause tot com- 
plaint, and creates reasonable doubt 
as to its universal acceptance, the 
very things an effective Honor Sys- 
tem must not have. 

Social Error 
In the third place, have you heard 
the threats of social ostracism given 
to those who would try to report 
those whom they have caught cheat- 
ing'.' It does not concern us here 
whether or not this attitude SHOULD 
exist, the fact remains that it DOES 
exist. The attitude seems to be that 
no one wants to be a supercilious, 
suspicious stool-pigeon, they haven't 
the time or the inclination during an 
exam to check up on their classmates. 
They are perfectly willing to pledge 
their honor that they have neither 
given nor received aid themselves, but 
they will not accept the responsibility 
of any other student's integrity. The 
risk of reporting an innocent person 
is obviously great; to be perfectly 
frank it would invite a deserved punch 
on the nose. Any situation where the 
defendant's word is stacked against 
the prosecutor's impression is Intol- 

Student A vs. It 
Though it hasn't happened yet, im- 
agine if you will the beautiful stink 
that could be raised by "student A" 
who had a grudge against "student 
B"! Just a word to the Honor Coun- 
cil and his enemy would be in real hot 
water. Ugly thought! Why doesn't 
the Honor System require the pledge 
,, n homework and class assignment 
of all kinds? Why are we not for- 
bidden the use of "trots'".' These are 

g„o<l examples of the general in- 
efficiency which the sytem forces us 

to tolerate in our campaign against 
cheating. If we actually want indi- 
vidual effort guaranteed we should 
adopt some other method of securing 
it, a method which Would he obeyed 
to in the letter instead of only casu- 
ally. When co-operation in a matter 
of this importance is not present we 
should dig to the roof of things and 
correct the cause instead of trying 
futilely to make a hopelessly idealistic- 
idea concrete ami practical. It is our 
linn belief that .Mass. State is no 
more capable of using the Honor Sys- 
tem. Certainly our character is no 
higher than that of other institutions 
who have long since discarded it. 

Idealism deaf to realism is the sole 

factor that has allowed the Honor 

System to remain. To those readers 
of this column who have had patience 

enough to follow our reasoning! we 

sincerely ask tolerance. We have 
tried to expose the weak points of 
the Honor System only that the 
ideals for which it stands may he 
strengthened.. In that spirit we await 
the opinions of those who have the 
besl interests of our college at heart.

would be far more appealing. It was 
interesting to notice some paragraphs 
about the A.B. degree petition at 

Mass. State, and also to find an ex- 
citing play by play description of 
some real fast cattle judging by 
Conn. State. 

The Feature section was very en- 
tertaining- the reviewer learned many 
new facts about l'.enny Goodman, -lack 
Benny, Simone Simon, Bob Burns and 
other collegiate lime-lighters. The 
contrast of articles serious and 

humorous was effectively done in this 

section, and it made up for some of 

the faults. The photographs were 
good, but could have been decidedly 
better, what with all these college 
boys camlid-cameraing all over the 
place. The cartoons were either 
wrongly placed, or else they had 00 
place in the magazine at all. They 
definitely left a bad taste in the re- 
view it's mouth. 

There you have it- -the Collegiate 

Review. The editors are dallying with 
potential dynamite. Let us hope the 
next issue explodes into the college 
sensation of the year.

The other night one of the eampii: 
landladies received the /care of bel- 
li I'e. Just as aha was going to bed 
-lie heard a voice say insistently: "I 
will kill him. 1 will kill him and take 
you away from him. 1 will kill my- 
-o!f!" The lady, mm h perturbed got 
up and looked around, but. found 
nothing amiss. As soon as she climb- 
ed into bed again, however, the mys- 
terious voice started again. How long 
this went on, we don't know — but 
it wasn't until the next morning that 

she discovered that it was one of her 

sophomore boarders reading I-.e Cld 

out loud for his French exam. 

To the Editor of the Collegian 
Dear Sir: 

It was literally impossible for any 
of us who felt the significance and 
importance of the Honor System to 

hold our chairs upon reading '-he 

communication signed Diogenes pub- 
lished in the Collegian last Thursday. 
So I am taking this opportunity of 
answering it and presenting the point 
of view of not only the Honor Coun- 
cil hut the majority of the students 
and faculty of .Mass. State. 

In the hist place three cheers for 
the frankness of the letter and for 
the fact that the writer would not In 
silent when he observed weaknesses 
in a system BO vital to us as the 
Honor System. May his example of 
constructive criticism lead the way 
to more criticism of student organ- 
izations by the student body where 
criticism is needed. 

Because of its very nature the 
Honor System is not an easy sys- 
tem to maintain in perfect effective- 
ness. The freedom that it oilers to 
students implies a greater responsi- 


bility for them in maintaining 
conduct during examinations 
high level. \'o one is more aw 
the discrepencies ami shortcoim 
the Honor System as it is n 
right here and now on the i 
than the Honor Council. We 
that there are students who ft 
reporting a cheater is again 
principles; we realize that oul 
large a body of students as w< 
here there are bound to be died 
Wool cheaters; we realize thai 
tain few members of the faci 
decidedly opposed to the Hon 
tern (and they are not afraid | 
so as the writer of the comn 
tion seems to think); we real 
certain classes always present pi 
lems because of the seating an 
ment and crowded conditions. I 
Council is anything, it is real; 
l!ut just as much of a realil 
more significant than its shu 
ing.s are the benefits and advanta 
of the Honor System. It is 
needless to list them, as they 
the common knowledge to all. 
for the sake of completeness I 
should he mentioned here. The 1! 
System eliminates proctored >■■..

A State University in Massachusetts, if such a university 
is a real educational addition, is needed soon If our Common- 
wealth is to maintain its standing as a progressive educational 
center. For years the Hay State has enjoyed the enviable reputa- 
tion of being one of the few states that lead in educational op- 
portunities, for its residents. Since the turn of the century how- 
ever, Massachusetts has lived largely on its reputation as a 
state winch provides its young people with adequate facilities 
for higher education. 

In ID'J'2 a commission headed by the President of Boston 
University paradoxically rejected the idea of a State University 
for . iassachusetts. It reported, however, that at the time Mas- 
sachusetts rated as an "also ran" in providing chances for a 
college education to its residents. At the time Oregon had one 
out of every seven of its residents of college age in college. 
Other states followed close behind, Massachusetts had only one 
out of fifteen of its residents of college aye receiving higher 

Is There? 

It happened at Amherst, in a class 
in Political Science. Every two weeks 
the professor takes time out to 
answer any weighty questions about 
the situation in Spain, etc., which are 
bothering his students. The questions 
are written out by the students on 
slips of paper and placed in a box. 
from which they are drawn and 
answered. After dealing at length 
with the problems of international 
relations last week, the professor 
drew forth the next question, and read 
forth a; solemnly as possible 
there a Santa Clans?" 


We Gel H? 

And then there was the other Am- 
herst prof whose son is the captain 
of the Princeton football squad, ami 
who dismissed class one day after the 
appearance on his bulletin board of a 
recent joke in Ksquire whose caption 
was "What could I do— after all he 
was Princeton's star tackle!" 

And now for the continuation of 
the thrilling dramatic epic story. 

Hairy.. u!f. A: you remember, Hairy* 
waif and Wefaltanhow, Griadle and 
his Damn have just started out on 
i party 

In spite of the reputation which Massachusetts has as an 
educational tenter, educational opportunities for young people j Hairy waif: I like you, baby. 
of the state are not adequate. 30,000 students are enrolled in Wefallanhow: Where'd you gel that 
colleges in this state, but there are only 20,000 residents of Mas- {line, hip;, strong W handsomet Kinds 
sachusetts in college anywhere! 

Increasingly large numbers of Massachusetts students are 
now forced to look to other states for their college training. Thus 
We find 150 students from our state at the University of New 
Hampshire, which has grown into a university only within the 
last decade. Countless numbers of other young people of slender 
purse do not attend any college, because adequate inexpensive 
educational facilities are not available in Massachusetts. 

If the proposed University of Massachusetts is to be a gen- 
uine addition to already existing educational institutions, it will 
(ill a need urgently felt by Massachusetts citizens. If the "Uni- 
versity" is to be merely and administrative fiction for governing 
State schools, it will lie a lunctionless misnomer. It will be merely 
a tool for administering scattered teachers colleges and the like. 

But the University of Massachusetts ought to lie more than 
a name. It ought to be an organic entity, where students maj 

come to study at low cost, and where they will become in contact 
with all the cmss currents of thought which are generally found 
at universities. This can come about only if the undergraduate 
body, at least, is on one campus, such as we have at Massachu- 
setts State College. This ideal will never be possible if scattered 
teachers colleges are reorganized into specialized schools of IT eral 
arts, home economics and the like. 

If a State University is to be founded the people of Mas- 
sachusetts have their choice among a functionless misnomer, B 
scattered system of specialized schools restricted in scope ;:d 
lacking the influence of broad educational life, or mi institut on 
offering opportunities for study in a vital acadc ic aim .

ing the proctor," anil using success 
at the game as a justification lor 
cheating is eliminated. But the reall.s 
important consideration is this: if an 
ethical code cannot be maintained by 
a college group, a supposedly Ultelll 
gent part of society, then what 
chances will it ever have of being a 
vital force in society V 

The reasons given in the comimini 
cation why unanimity of approval of 
the Honor System will never be re 
alixed here at M. S. C. are well -meant 
and comprehensive, but, with the e\ 
ci ptioii of the third point, fail to im 
press "tie very much. That unanimity 
of approval could be secured for any 
system Proctor or Honor is ever 
doubtful iii the first place. Hut, to 
continue, in answer to the first two 
reasons given disapproval of the 
system by a minority of the faculty, 
and the existence of disparging crit- 
ical humor leveled at the system 
one might say again that this would 
be true for any system. What is sig- 
nificant in our case is that the major- 
ity of the professors approve of the 
system, and it is a rare case when 
a student makes fun of the system 
without encountering strenuous op 

As for the social ostracism of any- 
one reporting a cheater, we are aware 
that it does exist to a certain extent, 
ami this problem is a most vital one 
confronting the Council and the in 
tegrity of the System. Though a diffi- 
cult one, we have evidence proof 
from other colleges, particitlai 
Princeton, that it can be solved. It incapable of maintaining and enf ore

ers in a new intelligent understand of the Honor System to the majority

already among us many of these in- a few who supposedly go unchalleng 
dividual.-. The question of reporting Continued <■» !'/■ n 

has been harangued about ever since 

the system was Inaugurated here in 

1920. If merely may be stated here 

that cases of cheating may be dealt 

with emeitively on Ike spot if stu- 
dents will take it upon themselves to 
speak to offenders and call their bluff

The writer of the communication 
mentions grudges. The Council acted 
mi an obvious case involving a grudge 
last June, but such cases are easy 
lo expose and occur so rarely any 
way that they are practically neglig- 
ible. The writer further states that 
the Honor System is casually oh

it does not cover homework and class 
assignment . Would a Procter Syi

Remember the boycott against Japanese silk we spoke of last week! 
The Amherst Student T. F. J. Jr. in Alien Cloisters sought to find out for 
himself if the boycott extended to silk undies. (Alien Cloisters is the name ol 
a column.) "My dear, we don't wear such things," came the reply. Interesting 

boycott, don't you think? 


Library News from Russell Sage Quill lists the following disturb- 
ances "caused bv students." 1 Whispering; 2 Noise in halls; 8 Inadequate

sympathy for the students who take up too much space, or who cause 

improper ventilation and heating. 


The members of the University of Pennsylvania band have voted 
against having co-ed tooters in their midst. They said that it disrupts disci- 
pline, and causes embarrassment when uniforms have to be changed in the 
aisle of a railroad coach. Ah well, boys will be boys. 


"Co-eds to Entertain Men at Novel Poverty Dance" reads a headline 
in the Vermont Cynic. What's so novel about poverty? We've been broke 
since October. To us its "that old feeling." 


Another sign of progressive womanhood has reared its ugly head at 
Bates College. The Bates Student tells us that a larger percentage of co-eds 
than men students have made the dean's list. 


We wish to cooperate with the governor in his desire to make our

Suggests Medical 

Insurance Program 

All members of the faculty and ad- 
ministration who are interested in a 
plan for group hospitalization will 
meet in Bowker Auditorium tomorrow 
afternoon at 4:80. Mr. Stanley Saun- 
ders will explain the plan and answer 
questions. Mr. Saunders represents 
the Associated Hospital Service of 
Massachusetts, which offers group 
plans for hospital service. 

Many of the faculty have expressed 
interest in the plan offered by a non- 
profit corporation sponsored by the 
leading hospitals of the state. Enroll- 
ment is only on a group basis. If suf- 
ficient members of the faculty ex- 
press approval, a group will be form- 
ed here. 

Stratton Speaks on 

Crime and Medicine 

Frank C. Stratton, M. S. C. 1928, 
at present a toxicologist in the bu- 
reau of criminal investigation for 
the city of Boston police department, 
will be the guest speaker at the bac- 
teriology club meeting on Tuesday 
December 14, at 7:00 p. m. 

His subject is entitled "Medico-le- 
gal analyses; their importance in the 
field of modern criminal investiga- 
tion." Actually the theme of the 
talk will be: what do we do in Bos- 
ton when someone gets killed? The 
cases considered will involve hit and 
run and miscellaneous accidents, man- 
slaughter, and murder. 

Students and faculty are invited. 

Orange, New Jersey, 
Camera Collection 
in Goodell Library 

An execllent collection of photo- 
graphs from the Camera Club of 
Orange, New Jersey, comprises this 
week's exhibition in Goodell Library. 
Perhaps the most striking picture 
in the collection is the one entitled 
Hot Spot, which has been appropri- 
ately put on the feature board; it is 
outstanding, not particularly for its 
composition, but for the vivid con- 
trast of color with the black silhouet- 
ted figures. Wilson, the photographer 
of this picture, is also responsible for 
another interesting and entirely dif- 
ferent study in contrasts, Maine Coast, 
in which he has brought out the vary- 
ing lights and darks of surf. Sea at 
Avon, by Deppermann also shows 
these same qualities. 

Two studies of fog, which is a fav- 
orite subject, are Mystic City, which 
is very realistic, and Morning Mists, 
St. Wolfgang, in which there is a 
subtle blending of shadows so as to 
make only one sharp line in the 
photograph. In the collection also is 
a delightful, contrasting study of 
youth in The Little Oriental, and 
Good-m-m-m, which should interest 

The still lifes in the exhibition are 
commendable, especially Washed Up, 
a familiar theme; and an amusing 
picture entitled Study of Three Eggs, 
which demonstrated what can be done 
with a very simple subject. 

Lastly there are a few excellent 
landscapes, of which perhaps Trees 
of Cade Cod, is the best, for it has 
a simplicity and restraint that some 
of the others lack. B. H.

Christmas Bazaar Finals 

Plans are quickly being com- 
pleted for the Christmas 
Bazaar to be held at the Abbey 
Center on Friday, December 10. 
This is one of the annual events 
of the Christian Federation and 
this year the bazaar promises 
to be a real occasion. The 
bazaar will offer a variety of 
suggestions for Christmas pur- 
chasers, and will be open from 
10 to 5 on Friday for women, 
and from 4 to 5 for men. Re- 
freshments will be served from 
2-4 p. m. 


The Annual Christmas Carol Sing 
will take place during and after the 
Vespers Service at which Dean Wil- 
liam Machmer will speak on Sunday, 
December 12. It has become a tradi- 
tion in M. S. C. for students and 
faculty to sing Christmas carols at 
the Vespers Service preceding the 
Christmas vacation. Since President 
Baker has come to the college the 
group which attended the Vespers 
Service has gathered around a large 
and brilliantly lighted Christmas tree 
in front of the college pond. This 
procedure will be continued this year.

With hut three days to wait for 
their expedition, State's little Ad-

At this early date, the outstanding 
event of the Winter Carnival prom 
ises to be the skiing program, for 
Charles Warren, Stockbridge School 
'35, and a member of the Eastern 
Professional Ski Club, has offered to 
present an exhibition of professional 
skiing by the members of his club. 
This organization is of national re- 
nown, and contains many outstanding 
exponents of the art of skiing. The 
club has given many public exhibi- 
tions, and recently presented perform- 
ances at the Boston, and at the New 
York Gardens. 

The Pathe News Reel shown at the 


Acting for Mr. and Mrs. Monroe 
Smith, co-founders of the American 
Youth Hostels, President Hugh P. Ba- 
ker has invited any of the student 
body of Massachusetts State College 
to spend the Christmas holidays at 
the national home of the famous 
movement in Northfield. 

Every year hostelers from all over 
the country gather at Northfield for 
a grand reunion during Christmas va- 
cation. Good skiing is enjoyed a few 
miles north of the hostel and the tra- 
ditional charges of twenty-five cents 
per night plus a ten cent fuel charge 
j will still hold. The only other prere- 
quisite is that each visitor hold an 
A. Y. H. pass which costs but OM 
dollar for those under twenty-one 

and only two dollars for those over 

I 'resident Ham, of near-by Mount 
Holyoke College has extended the 
same invitation to his students as 
have educational leaders all over the 

Amherst Theatre this week contained 
shots, taken at the New York (Jar- 
dens, of this organization as the mem- I 
hers performed daring jumps and | 
stunts before « thrill-seeking audience. 
Mr. Warren is one of a trio who pre- j 

Banted a spectacular triple jump be- 
fore the camera. 

Mr. Warren, of Deerlield. Mass., has 
also offered his services as technical 
advisor of the skiing program. The 
professional exhibition, to he given at 
Bull Hill, will be by far the greatest 
attraction the carnival has offered, and 
is certain to be a spectacle few 

people will see equalled here. 


The Adelphia announces that the 

1937 Red Cross drive has resulted in 
a total of $202.17, an increase over 
last year's sum and a mark better 
than the goal set at two-hundred dol- 
lars before the drive opened. 

Although not much over the goal, 
the Adelphia feels satisfied with the 
drive as contributions were accepted 
from nearly every group at the col- 
lege. In view of the present economic 
depression it had been doubted that 
the students would be able to raise 
the necessary sum. 

The drive committee wishes to 
thank all students, faculty, and 
friends aj Well aa fraternities, sor- 
orities ami clubs, that aided in the 
drive, for the part they have played 
in helping reach the Red Croes goal 
The drive, which is an annual affair 
at the State College, enables the col- 
lege community to make its contribu- 
tion to the yearly lied Cross roll call. 
As in past years the students have 
responded well.

the question of instituting a Bachelor 

was held at President Baker's office. 

Trustees present were: Frederick

teacher placement throughout tin- 

After having heard requests, pe- 
titions, and points of view during the 
morning, the committee adjourned to 

luncheon at Draper Hall. President 

Baker and Dean Machmer then ad- 
dressed the group, the Dean speaking 
on practices at other land grant col- 
leges, Further discussion by the group 
entered on the possible effects of 

granting a degree. 

No statements of opinion wen- is- 
sued by either the trustees or the 
administration, but individual reports 
by the committeemen will be drawn 
up and submitted for another com 
mittee meeting during the third week 
in January. The committee will then 
consider its respective findings and 
'•ral trustee meeting on th next day.

Pressing Problem of Keeping up Appearances 

Usually Hope Springs Eternal in 

the Freshman breast, but now with

Mystery has again appeared on our 
little campus. The other night a 
freshman walking back to North Col- 
lege was astounded by the appearance 
between the Mem Building and Drill 
Hall of an apparition in the form of 
a blonde girl in a white evening 
gown. The "ghost" appeared to be 
trying to decide which way to go, 
and finally set off in the direction of 
the Abbey, "She was sobbing her 
heart out," reported the excited stu- 
dent later, but when questioned as 
to his mode of action, he replied that 
he just stood and watched her. We 
understand that the boys have under- 
taken to give him a few lessons. 

One of the professors mentioned 
that he was particularly sensitive to 
horse meat, which always makes him 
violently ill, as a result of toxin anti 
toxin innoculations. It has been sug- 
gested that he try a meal at the 
Cafe . . . 



With news reaching US from Boston about a proposed 
"University of Massachusetts," and with the Trustee committee 
hearing- on the A.B. degree occuring during the past week, the 
two issues involved have perhaps become needlessly confused. 
Any association of the immediate adoption of the A.B. degree 
with the future establishment of a University of Massachusetts 
is unfortunate and tends to becloud the issue at hand. 

The granting of an A.B. degree at Massachusetts State 
College is a matter distinct and separate from the rumored found- 
ing of a State University in this Commonwealth. The desire on 
the part of students, faculty, and alumni, for the adoption of 
the Bachelor of Arts degree is based on certain definite grounds. 
The awarding of the A.B. to students of the State College who 
are qualified to receive such a degree will be merely a recognition 
of the type of work that they have accomplished, and will un- 
doubtedly aid them to enter proper graduate schools, and to secure 
positions for which they qualify. The granting of an A.B. degree 
will make the Science degree, now awarded indiscriminately to 
arts and science students, more meaningful. These are the major 
reasons why the Arts degree is desired. 

There is however no relation between the proper recogni- 
tion of work now done by the students at the State College, and 
the founding of a University of Massachusetts. Nor does it follow 
that such recognition will lead to establishment of a State Uni- 
versity, here or elsewhere. There are many colleges in New Eng- 
land which oiler both degrees and which have remained colleges. 

The matter of the State University for Massachusetts is 
one which has been speculated upon for many years by people 
of the state. As far back as 1023, the University question has 

And speaking of meat, things have 
come to a pretty pass when the home 
ec majors here can't tell ham from 
veal. If you don't believe it, ask one 
of the sorority house managers who 
came home to find the girls cutting 
up a perfectly beautiful ham and 
preparing it as veal cutlets. 

"T. B. or not T. U.", mused the doc- 
tor as he ex rayed the patients lungs, 

We have received another commun- 
ication: a freshman wants to know 
when the sniping season closes . . . 

1 een raised, and in that year a commission under George F. Zook. 
appointed to make a survey of the educational system of Massa- 
chusetts, discussed the problem in their official report. For many 
years now the idea of a University has been toyed with, and re- 
peatedly bills have been introduced in the legislature at Boston. 
Thus the University issue ante-dates the A. 15. issue and the two 
should in nowise be associated. 

The University of Massachusetts is something to lie con- 
sidered for future years. It will only become a fact if it is soughl 
for by the citizens of the Commonwealth. It can only materialize 
if the residents of Massachusetts feel the need for such an insti- 
tution, and if they feel able to support it. Whether or not there 
will ever lie founded a State University is a matter for conjecture, 
a matter to be decided in future years. 

The granting of an A.B. degree, however, is of immediate 
importance. A proper recognition of the work completed by the 
arts students will be an invaluable aid to the students affected, 
and will bestow upon both the Science and the Arts degrees 
fuller meaning than is proposed by the B.S. as it is granted now. 
Matters of immediate importance should not be confused with 
those of Speculative future value. The granting of an A.B. degree 
should be considered in the light of its own merit, and should 
not lie associated with any other issue.

1836, today is pioneer among schools to offer

It took almost a regiment of Marines to over-

Give Camels for Christmas! There's no doubt about 
how much people appreciate Camels the cigarette 
that's made from finer, MORE EXPENSIVE TOBACCOS. 
A gift of Camels carries a double greeting from you. It 
says: "Happy Holidays and Happy Smoking!" 

(right) The famous Christ- 
mas package, the Camel 
carton— lOpacks of "20's" 
— 200 cigarettes. You'll 
find it at your dealer's. 

(/*//) Another Christmas special— 4 boxes of Camels 
in "flat fifties"— wrapped in gay holiday dress. 





If you know a man owns a pipe — you'll be mak- 
ing an appropriate selection if you give him a 
big gift package of PRINCE ALBERT. Prince 
Albert's as mild a pipe tobacco as ever delighted 
a pipe- smoker. It's easy on the tongue— doesn't 
bite. It's extra cool, thanks to its "crimp cut." 
And it's tops for mellow taste. 

(right) A pound of Prince Albert in a glass 
humidor that keeps the tobacco in prime con- 
dition and becomes a welcome possession.

An increasingly important 
branch of medical training is 
that given in medical technol- 
ogy courses to prepare labora- 
tory workers to assist medical 
scientists in the diagnosis and 
treatment of disease. One of 
the largest departments of this 
kind is that at the University 
of Minnesota, where future 
technologists must complete a 
four-year course for a degree. 
The first three years of this 
course are spent in the arts 
college and the medical school, 
the final year in securing prac- 
tical experience in hospital lab- 
oratories, scenes from which are 
shown here. 

... of many kinds 
are made by the 
medical technol- 
ogists, and here 
Veda Huston is 
learning the correct 
procedure to be fol- 
lowed in making 
test tube experi- 

Microscopic examinations 
. . . require careful and skil 
preparation. Here Nell Hcinol 
Louise Reed prepare a piece of I 
for mounting on a microscope 



X-ray machine operation 
... an important part of the course. Here a 
student is demonstrating the correct method of 
centering an x-ray tube above the part of the body 
to be photographed. 

Blood donors 
. . . must be tested 
so that their blood 
properties can be 
determined. — >

To All Our Friends 

At Massachusetts State College 






The students of Boston College cant get enough book larnin'. About 
a hundred of their senior* signed ■ petition to have the reference room open 
during the Christmas recess, so that they may complete outside reeding 

assignments. So says The Heights, under-graduate publication. 

Speaking of tetters to the editor, we fame across this one in The Mount 
Holyoke News about the affairs of the world. "Hut are we fully aware? 
Can we be with such a detached point of view? Aren't we losing sensitivity? 
Don't we need some channel for contact, for expression?" To which we can 
only add, why doesn't somebody do something? But who? What? When? 


The University of Rochester Campus boasts of the most "wide awake, 
observant" reporter on any college campus (except Amherst). To wit: "One 
such news-hawk shuffled up to the sports editor and woefully exclaimed, 
'Sorry, I can't get no story on the varsity for ya. Coach Alexander and Cox 
were in some kind of an accident— car on fire, broken ribs, er sump'n'." 

This boycott of Japanese goods is becoming serious. The girls at 
Skidmore are not decorating the house Christmas trees as they have in 
the past. Their reason is that most of the Christmas tree decorations are 
Made in Japan. The Simmons News is conducting a student poll to sound 
out student opinion in the matter. The Smith girls have abandoned silk 
stockings. The editor of The Tufts Weekly has written a stinging editorial 
against the proposed policy. We wonder, can they all succeed in defeating 
Japan ? 

We think it was the Christmas spirit that prompted the students of 
the University of California to march to the library one night, 250 strong, 
holding lighted candles, but the Associated Collegiate Press tell us that the 
students were protesting against the poor lighting facilities in the library. 

"Love is never out of season." Public petting is getting to be a 
nuisance on the campus of Louisiana State University, according to the 
Receille, the student paper. An editorial stated that either the amorous 
should court in seclusion or "vigorous measures" be adopted to curb Cupid's 
campus activities. 

We have seen in 'Hamp living evidences of the Smith girls boycott 
of silk stockings. Shapely limbs are now covered in long woolen stockings 
that reach to an undetermined height above the knee. Colors range from 
deep red all the way to green. The proud wearers strut in their newly adopted 
raiment like great martyrs bear their wounds.

amphitheatre. Since the ravine at 
present is largely used, by conven- 
tions and visiting groups, as a gath- 
ering place in the summer when the 
college is closed, the amphitheatre 
would be of high value. Last year a 
group representing Women's Clubs 
throughout the state made use of it, 
as did camping 4H'ers, convening 
Grangers, and visitors attending the 
annual Farm and Home Week pro- 

Plans for the future concerning the 
ravine, the old chemical laboratory cel- 
lar, and the surrounding area as a 
whole are based on the proposed con- 
struction of an outdoor recreational 
area, which, besides its utility, would 
do much to beautify this comer of 
the campus. Here, too, the planting 
of evergreens will be in order if the 
plan materializes.

Derby Will Weed Out Best Men 
After Clockings For 

K. C. Meet 


An announcement yesterday from 
the athletic office of Trinity College 
explained that athletic relations be- 
tween Trinity and Connecticut State 
College have been broken for an in- 
definite period because "relatione be- 
tween the two colleges have not fos- 
tered good sportsmanship, the aim of 
college sports." 

The Trinity office explained that 
the break was in no way to effect 
the academic relation between the 
tWO College* There was no comment 
from the Connecticut office. 

In an attempt to determine the 
leading candidates for his varsity 
relay team, Coach L. L. Derby will 
run time trials for his hopefuls to- 
day and tomorrow. 

Runners showing to the best ad 
vantage in the clockings will receive 
most of the intensive work slated for 
the relay club after the Christmas 
recess. John Murphy, a junior, who 
was the .shining middle distance n 
ner on the freshman brigade two 
yean ago, but who lost out through 
scholastic difficulties last year, is ex- 
pected to report following the va- 

The schedule lined up for this win- 
ter opens the 26th of next month with 
the Knights of Columbus meet at th< 
Boston Garden, followed by the Bos 
ton Athletic Association's get-togeth- 
er on February 12. Then come two 
dual meets on the home track against 
Connecticut State and Worcester 
Tech. Only triangle meet of the sea 
son is set for February 20, when the 
Maroon will tangle with Tufts and 
W. P, I. at Medford. A dual meet 
with Wesleyan in the local cage ofl 
March i!»th completes the winter 


Opening with Boston University the 

Saturday after Christmas vacation, 
Coach Rogers' l'.WS swimming forces 
are at present engaged in severe con- 
ditioning practice in an effort to 
whip the weak squad into the best 
shape possible. 

Holding afternoon and night prac- 
tice sessions, Rogers has been work 
Eng with every member of the squad 
in the hopes that some of them will 
Shine beyond their preseason prom- 
ise. Aside from Henry Salmela, Cap- 
tain Dean Rounds and George Pitts 
the Maroon club will start unknowns 
against the Hub team, (iardner An- 
derson and Hoy Morse, two other 
members of the squad have been com 
ing along of late and may he able to 
help the Rogers cause. Captain 
Rounds, one of the best backstrokes 
in New England has been out with a 
bad shoulder and too much can not 
be expected of him in the season 
opener. Salmela is a diver and should 
out-form all Terrier competition. 
I'itts. broke a college sprint record 
as a sophomore last year and should 
be able to run away from tin- Bos- 
ton men. In the last week, however,

some of tin- speed he has been show- 
ing in earlier practices. 

Following the opener with Boston 

University the Rogersmen will n |

will come the isth following term

deserted his post to the surprise of

i.- halted. King is invariably at the 
bottom of the pile." 

M 2amai is constantly out of posi- 
tion just before the ball is snapped, 
but the opposition invariably find him 
at the right spot when the big mo- 
ment arrives," 

(nterfraternity sports continued last 

week with only one hard-fought 

battle, that between Sigma Alpha 
Kpsilon and Alpha Fpsilon Pi. The 
score at the close stood lit to IK in 
favor of S. A. F. in a game which 
| was close all the way through and in 
the lead of the loser, but in the dos- 
ing minutes S. A. F. pulled up and 
forged ahead of A. F. P. and Phelps 
| of S. A. F., each of whom scored 
even points. In volleyball, however. 
A. F. P. retaliated and won the first 
'wo games. Another game of the 
week saw A. S. P. smother A. (J. R. 
in basketball to the tune of 4:< to it. 
Walsh, Nastri, and Breglio got to- 
gether and scored :;7 points between 
them. The Volleyball game Again went 
to the basketball loser as A. (',. \{, 
won 2 games to none. 

The last game was another walk- 
away, this time for Theta Chi which 
defeated N'on-Fratern it \ by a 80 ti 
14 score. This WSJ a lively tussle in 
; which Wally Miles scored M points, 
which made him high scorer for the 
week. Competition was furnished 
chiefly by Al Ir/.yk who put away II 
points. Theta Chi also won the vol 
ley ball games, two games to none. 

Highlight of the freshman athletic 
activities last week was the frosh 
varsity basketball scrimmage. Coach 
Prigard sent his yearling charges in- 
to a scrimmage with the varsity five, 
and the spectators witnessed a well 
fought battle put by the willing fro I,. 
Alter 16 minutes of play, the varsity 
hit their proper stride and put on an 

exhibition that easily overcame the 
fighting freshmen. Nickopolous, Dan 

lels, and Bregglio war itstanding in 

the plebe cause. 

Yearling track interest has upped 

the past week as Derby has pitted 

his upper-classmen against the frosh. 
Two speedsters, O'Connor ami Crim- 

miiis, have been out in front in every 
race for the freshmen, which bids 
fair for a good season for the Ml 
cinder path dub. 
After a period of Indoor instruc 

tions under the tutelage of v.n • 

captain Hill Bullock, in which rule 
changes, as well as offensive nnd de 

fensive tactics were outlined, the 

yearling Ice quad took to the ,,,,t 
door rink, and Intersquad scrimmage 

have been the features of the Week. 
Heal work for the frosh puckmen will 

begin after the vacation, when Bul- 
lock will whip his dub into shape for 
the numeral game with the upper 
dassmen as well as for tentative .,m 
side games.

In most colleges and universities 
in the country, the manager of any 
athletic team occupies what J. C. 
Freuss of Harvard '3fi refers to as — 
"a position of potential importance 
equal to that of the captain and coach. 
Hut, whereas the elforts of the cap- 
tain and coach came to a fruition 
obvious even to the public, the man- 
ager working in the background, may 
hope for but few material results 
from his services. The glory and suc- 
cess belong to the team, and while 
the manager's presence is appreciat- 
ed, to the public his role is similar 
to that of a silent player." 

But this is only SO at the other 
colleges, Here at M. S. C, the aver- 
age undergraduate spurns the call for 
dull years of apprenticeship to a 
team managership until it is too late. 
Freshmen here feel they are renun- 
ciatory to even wish to be manager. 
Conversely to their conceptions of 
managerships derived from high 
school affiliations, the "honor" is not 
negligible, nor is the routine dull and 
mechanical with the credit often mis- 
placed. Nor are the men who choose 
a managership as an outlet for their 
extra-curricular ambition, deemed here 
on this campus as "forgotten men." 

The only reason that men fail as 
managers is because they enter the 
career with but a vague idea of just 
what a manager's duties are. The 
manager of a sport is not a person 
who does just as little work as he 
can. Neither should he be a valet to 
the players. Nor should he degener- 
ate into a mechanical figurehead. If 
the candidate for a managership has 
in his mind a distorted ideal of a 
manager's goal, then he will not lend I 

joyed by managerial competition. 
True, the apprenticeship may be dull, 
but for a man with enthusiasm, the 
whole wide field of activity is un- 
folded for his personal benefit, and 
the goal is presented in the form of 
his influence over the success of the 

Under the jurisdiction of the man- 
ager, in affiliation with his coach and 
the Physical Education Department, 
come the arrangement of schedules 
with the consequent handling of guar- 
antees and intercollegiate contacts, 
and recommendations regarding the 
awards of letters and the purchase 
of equipment. These combined with 
his advisory influence in the athletic 
office comprise the instruments with 
which he must work. As soon as he 
becomes manager, he assumes the 
privilege of membership to the Joint 
Committee of Intercollegiate Athletics 
which meets regularly in Dean Mach- 
mer's office. There he has the power 
to vote on all matters regarding ath- 
letics at Massachusetts State College. 

Now, the manager can direct his 
influence through the channel of — 
efficiency in management. The com- 
fort of the team is absolutely es- 
sential to its success. How many 
teams have gone to pieces because 
of irritation and tension caused by 
petty faults in their management. A 
team whose needs are quickly taken 
of by a smooth running managerial 
organisation possesses a distinct, if 
minor, advantage. The manager, to 
this end, must also have from the 
beginning, an appreciation of the val- 
ue of cordial press relations, cooper- 
ating to the best of his ability in 
securing prompt and accurate infor- 
mation and statistics. 

The manager's power in the field of 
psychology and diplomacy can be ap- 
preciated by the members of the 
team. Hut as a confidant and advisor, 
he can promote good feelings, ele- 
vate morale and prevent petty grudg- 
es and grievances. The manager

to the prestige of the position, nor 
to the significance of the varsity 
sweater that he is aiming for by 
merely carrying out the duties of 
manager, nor will that man add to 
the team's success — which is his ulti- 
mate goal. 

It Is necessary, in face of the college's 
forward strides that the position of 
manager, too, be uplifted. This calls 
designed to bring to the attention | f or m „ re competition among the stu- 
dent body for the managerial posi- 
tions. Why, then, does the average 
student shrink from managerial com- 
petition 7 Why doesn't he wish to 
share in a seasonal average of .785 
such as was enjoyed by our sensation- 
al ball team last spring? 

The answer lies in the ignorance 
of incoming freshmen to the possi- 
bilities that can be gained and en- 

of students those persons and 
agencies with which contact 
should be made for success in 
recreational planning.

ager should be immediately an inter- 
mediary between the coach and the 
team, and between the team and the 
athletic office. 

Lastly, by being receptive to new- 
ideas, by being keen, the manager 
can institute innovations or significant 
changes in the schedule which will 
give his team something to work for. 
There is always room for improve- 
ment in any system and the manager 
is in the best position to perceive and 
recommend the improvements. 

Once a man becomes manager and 
strives for his team's success, the 
mechanical routine of the tasks of his 
candidacy will be eliminated and the 
man will be able to see beyond the 
discomfort of dull managerial work 
to a field of activity and potential 
[lower. Says J. ('. Freuss: "Once this 
happens, his organization will be re- 
juvenated from top to bottom and 
we shall see the dawn of a new era 
of enthusiasm and efficiency in col- 
lege athletic management." 

Think it over, men of '41. (let in 
touch with the managers, or the 
coaches and talk the managership and 
the sport over with them. Don't wait 
until your Junior year to decide, be- 
cause then it will be too late.

Frank 1*. Hand, head of the depart-

George Haylon, chairman of the 
student A.B. degree committee, read 
the petition on the granting of an 
A.B. degree which was presented to 
the trustees last June. Miss Strode 
cited the cultural development of the 
college during recent years, and Miss 
Becher gave the attitude of the stu- 
dents who, though not majoring in 
cultural subjects, still feel the need 
of the degree at the college. 

Cyrus French presented the views 
of the scientific societies and urged 
that the degree be instituted. John 
Hoar gave the committee the results 
of | recent student poll which showed 
the students overwhelmingly in favor 
of the degree. Those students reached 
voted 91 A r A for the establishment of 
the degree, 5.'VA indifferent. 

Professor Rand told the trustees 
that the A.B. degree would be es- 
pecially helpful to those students in 
his department who are planning to 
apply for teaching positions. 

Student and alumni agitation for 
the A.B. degree has stretched over 
several years. In December, 1933, and 
in January, li)34, President Baker 
appointed two committees, one of fac- 
ulty members and one of students, 
to study curriculum revision. Prom- 
inent in both reports from these com- 
mittees was the fact that an A.B. 
degree was badly needed. 

After the reports, the A.B. degree 
problem slumbered on until 1935-3('» 
when agitation was renewed in favor 
of the degree. A new committee was 
organized by the Student Senate, sur- 
veys of several kinds were conducted, 
and pro's and con's on the subject 
were tossed about in Collegian com- 
munications. Out of that campaign 
came the presentation of a student 
petition to the trustee committee last 
June and the resultant hearing last 
Tuesday. The establishment of the 
degree at present hinges on the de- 
cisions made at the January meeting 
of the board of trustees.

"The design was to open the door to a liberal educa- 
tion for this large class at a cheaper cost from being close 
at hand and to tempt them by offering not only sound 
literary instruction, but something more applicable to the 
productive employments of life. It would be a mistake to 
suppose it was intended that every student should become 
either a farmer or a mechanic, when the design compre-

adhere to the classics."

standards that prevail in certain of the academic activities may

historical representation of all that transpires at M. S. C, it 
is necessary that more funds be made available. The Band. 
which has never had a regular appropriation from the student 
activities tax. feels that if it is to be developed along with the 
college that it too should receive a regular student appropriation. 

Voting next Thursday will he in orderly fashion, by 
ballot at the close of convocation. Students should make it a 
point to attend this convocation to vote th
